Wake Forest Dean backs medical student who 'tortured' patient for mocking her 'pronoun pin'
Kychelle Del Rosario, a Woke student who tweeted about harming a patient for ridiculing her pronoun badge, said that she has received support from her North Carolina medical school, Wake Forest University. The medical school issued a statement that included servile comments from Kychelle Del Rosario, implying that she will return to rounds shortly.
Last month, the trainee medic provoked uproar by implying that she had purposefully hurt a guy who ridiculed her for missing his vein during a blood draw. She now claims she did so by accident, and that the second blood draw effort was carried out in accordance with established procedures by a more competent medical expert. Many people have questioned whether Del Rosario is telling the truth when she claims she intentionally injured the man and then backtracks to save her job.

Del Rosario's statements on Twitter did not reflect the incident, according to Wake Forest, who added that she followed the procedures correctly. They didn't elaborate on how they came to their conclusions regarding the 'facts,' or whether they simply took Del Rosario's claims about her genuine intentions at face value.
Meanwhile, the student intimated that she would be back to work after she had 'reflected' on her 'social media use as a professional' in a 'very staged and hollow' statement. The school was chastised for its tardy response to the controversy, and it has yet to comment on the potential liability difficulties it may face if Del Rosario is released again.
It comes as her classmates rallied around her and chastised the perpetrator, with one future doctor, Ewen Liu, even stating that the missing injection was 'karma-tic' for him ridiculing her. Del Rosario, a fourth-year medical student, was publicly chastised after saying on Twitter that she had purposely missed the patient's vein in order to have to inject him again. Her attack was justifiable, she claimed, because the victim, who has not been identified, laughed 'loudly' at her She/Her pronoun pin.
Wake Forest University School of Medicine said it conducted an investigation into the incident as soon as it learned of her tweet. In a revised statement, it stated: "Our documentation verifies that after the student physician was unsuccessful in obtaining the blood draw, the student appropriately deferred a second attempt to one of our certified professionals. The student did not attempt to draw blood again."
After an investigation, Dean Julie Freischlag from the medical school stated that she had followed the requirements correctly. Del Rosario stated, "I am writing this as an apology for a very irresponsible tweet that I sent on Twitter that I highly regret. For the event mentioned in the tweet, I was performing a blood draw on a patient and during our conversation they had shown dismay at my pronoun pin. I calmly shared my thoughts about pronouns and did not escalate the situation further."
She explained, "When I was doing the blood draw, I missed the first time due to my inexperience as a student, and per our policy, my supervisor performed the successful blood draw the second time. During this encounter, I never intended to harm the patient. I am truly sorry for poorly representing our school and our health system. I will reflect on responsible social media use as a professional and my duty to care for all my patients, regardless of any differences of belief."
