She works on the 4th floor. Says she is a medical assistant and goes around diagnosing patients with arthritis. She needs to be fired for working out of her scope of practice.
Yep

report her to administration. I assure you the MD she works for wants to be the only one diagnosing.

Will do! I'm so sick of things like this happening to people I care about. The lab is just as bad! They stick you a dozen times to draw blood and send the newbies in to practice on the old folks. Its so sad!

as a patient you have the right to refuse to let anyone draw your blood. I have a rule... you have one shot and if you don't get it... send someone else... if they don't get it send the anesthesiologist. I refuse to be a pin cushion simply because nursing schools don't make their students practice on each other first. I looked like a junkie while in school. Every vein I had that wouldn't blow was used for my fellow students to practice and I used them. Since when is it ok to use an untested weapon? Same goes with a nurse or medical assistant. Surprisingly it's the physicians who have the most trouble with IV's and blood draws.

well as a matter of fact the nursing students do have to practice on eachother and pass before ever being allowed to touch another human with needles

NOW they do. Nurses have to have a phlebotomy course now. But they didn't used to. So you see all these old nurses who can't even do a blood draw or thread an IV.

Aaaaaaand another reason I wouldn't take my dead dog to CMC to be pronounced dead!

There was a time.. 40+ yrs ago when educated, albeit a tad behind in technology, that CMC cared aka had a heart for the patients. Back when money wasn't a big deal.

Now its every Susie and Johnny that wants to play doctor's office in there to gossip, look cool in scrubs, and pretend they know what they are doing.

Oh and by the way, after CMC nearly killed my Dad and practically murdered my aunt, ALL of my family go to Knoxville Parkwest Hospital!!!!

Privatized yes, but BEST CARE EVER!!!

I agree with u ^^^
I've met a few nurses and techs who genuinely care for patients at CMC, but there are so many who are not meant for the jobs they hold! Education is a key factor and I believe that they do a very poor job at it. Especially in geriatrics.

it's not up to the lab who get's their blood drawn,the dr's write the orders.A person can refuse instead of getting mad at the person doing the job.

all the phlebotomists at the hospital are new and most are 18 or 19 year old,except for a very few,the new lab supervisor hired her friends or people she knew from Cookeville or her friends kids,the hospital got rid of one lousy lab supervisor only to get another,very poor quality,and no they didn't have any training or experience they hire them in for a lot less to save money so they can get their big bonus for making their budget,they don't care about patient needs.
Wtf

I don't think because someone says you might have arthritis you may want to ask your doctor about it is a diagnosis. It is so easy to sit back and criticize people, but I say walk a mile in their shoes before you want to put them down.

I live in Cookeville and from what I've heard about the new lab supervisor in Crossville, you are making some true statements. Gotta love supervisors who hire buddies so they can play at work
