Banker Too Sexy for CitiBank Sues Blood Clinic

NyPo reports:
Debrahlee Lorenzana, the curvy former CitiBank employee who sued the bank, saying she was fired for being too attractive, has filed suit against a Quest Diagnostics branch for “causing serious and severe permanent injuries” while drawing her blood.
Lorenzana, 36, charged in court papers that a July 2012 visit to the Bayside office was “improper, negligent and careless” which left her with “severe shock and damage to her nervous system.”
A phlebotomists, identified as “Jane Doe” allegedly “failed to reveal that he was unsuccessful in performing the procedure…failed to properly diagnose, treat, prescribe for the condition from which the [Lorenzana] was suffering” and “failed to advise concerning post-procedure care.”
The lawsuit was not clear as to what condition Lorenzana suffers from, but the ordeal caused her “to suffer severe physical pain and mental anguish.”


  1. I wonder if this has something to do with the high cost of health care in the US...

  2. How can a phlebotomist ( a person who draws blood) "diagnose, treat, and prescribe..."?
    Seems a bit over their license....

  3. He was probably distracted...
