Discuss with own Dr.: That does not sound safe. In such a situation, a patient should talk with her doctor as soon as possible to review the details about what happened, and find out why it happened. During a blood draw, the technician should be very careful to not contaminate the patient with germs, and to not accidentally inject anything back into the patient.
