Running Head: THE NEXT PATIENT IN LINE Summary: This case study involves legal consequences, medical errors, and professional liability in the facility where I am working as a medical assistant scheduled to work in the laboratory services providing various services such as urinalysis and blood draws. Since the facility is very busy, I decide to bring several patients back at once. The first two patients are established patients: Marc Sanchez, a 50 year old for diabetes checkup and Ms. Jane Williams, a 27 year old pregnant female for urinalysis. The third patient is a new patient in the facility Helen Stein, 84 year old whom the office manager asks for her blood draw while her chart is been assembled. It becomes very complicated when I am drawing blood from Mr. Sanchez’s arm, Ms. Stein says aloud that she “hates having her blood drawn.” Ms. Stein faints, and falls out of chair, and strikes her head on the side of the cabinet as she then falls to the floor while I am withdrawing the needle from Mr. Sanchez’s arm and an about to label his blood . Immediately, I give her first aid and in no time my office manager shows up at the area after hearing the loud bang. 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
