A Wake Forest School of Medicine student implied Tuesday that she intentionally stuck a patient with a needle an extra time after the patient joked about her "pronoun pin."
Fourth-year med student Kychelle Del Rosario tweeted that she "was doing a blood draw" on a patient who saw her "pronoun pin," laughed, and said, "She/Her? Well, of course it is! What other pronouns even are there? It?"
"I missed his vein so he had to get stuck twice," Del Rosario wrote. Her tweet was first reported by the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok.

Del Rosario deleted her Twitter account after Libs of Tik Tok sent its tweet, though an archived version remains available.
After a Twitter user brought Del Rosario's tweet to Wake Forest's attention, the school said, "We are taking measures to address this with the student."
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This student’s tweet does not reflect how Wake Forest University School of Medicine treats patients and provides patient care. We are taking measures to address this with the student.

Del Rosario has advocated for left-wing causes such as transgender restrooms and Black Lives Matter, Fox News reported.
