During a drunk driving lesson at an Austin, Texas high school, a paramedic poured blood all over a high school student's leg to "teach a lesson."
The female student was pretending to be a patient during a role-playing scenario when the paramedic threw human blood all over her leg to simulate a wound.
The blood, which was donated from the hospital, was intended to ONLY be used as a prop. Generally, it would have been used for a transfusion, but the bag was past its expiration date.
Oh great. That makes things even better.
The Emergency Medical Services director made a statement about the matter:
"Although this blood had undergone dozens of tests and was verified as completely clean, there was no reason that a student participant should have come in physical contact with human blood during the course of the simulation.
This action is something that the hospital does not condone, and hospital representatives took prompt action."
He also added that he didn't have "any doubt" that the medic "knew the blood was real."
The guy in question is thankfully now being investigated.
UGH, that's so disgusting. What in the world was he thinking??
That girl has a lawsuit on her hands!!
