Lab tech bites boy, 3, during blood test
‘A laboratory technician was fired after the parents of a 3-year-old boy claimed she bit his shoulder during a blood test, a hospital spokesman said.
Faith Buntin took her son Victor to St. Vincent Hospital on Friday to have blood drawn because of recent recalls of toys involving lead. She said she saw the worker put her mouth on Victor’s shoulder as she restrained him so another lab worker could draw the blood.
“I looked at her like that was the craziest thing that I’d ever seen,” Faith Buntin said Tuesday. “She looked at me and smiled and said, ‘Oh, it was just a play bite. He’s not hurt.'”‘
