A family in New Jersey is accusing a health care worker of assaulting their elderly father while he drew their father’s blood.
The incident happened in August at a long term care facility in Union City and was captured by surveillance video.
That video shows a phlebotomist, Rafael Manchego, drawing Benjamin Mejias’ blood while he laid in his nursing home bed.
In the video, Manchego appears to struggle to put a bandage on the patient after drawing the patient’s blood. Manchego appears to become frustrated with the patient, and shortly after, is captured twisting the patient’s arm in a manner the patient’s family describes as overly aggressive.
