"It Is NOT true that medical assistants cannot be sued!"
Medical malpractice law suits remain high in the United States. It is estimated that 75% of physicians will have been sued before reaching retirement age. Even though medical assistants are employees working under the umbrella of the licensed physician or practitioner ultimately responsible for their actions it does NOT mean that they cannot be named in an individual law suite should an injury occur.

Phlebotomy tips for Medical Assistant: when drawing blood on the elderly and children, use a butterfly needle.when you use a butterfly needle on the elderly, pull back the patient's skin to straighten out the vein to make the skin more stable before you insert the needle into the skin.This helps when it's time to stick, and the patient feels less pain while the procedure is done.
