A medical student is no longer working with patients after boasting on social media that she had stuck a patient twice with a needle after he mocked her transgender pronoun pin.

The medical student posted her questionable exchange with a patient on Twitter, and it was picked up and amplified by @LibsofTikTok, who highlights problematic statements by liberals on social media.

"I had a patient I was doing a blood draw on see my pronoun pin and loudly laugh to the staff 'She/Her? Well of course it is! What other pronouns even are there? It?" wrote the account. "I missed his vein so he had to get stuck twice."

The account was deleted by the author after the uproar online.

The woman was later identified as Kychelle Del Rosario, a fourth-year medical student at Wake Forest School of Medicine in North Carolina.

A publicist at Wake Forest released a statement to Gregg Re, a producer for the Tucker Carlson show on Fox News, saying Del Rosario no longer was working with patient.

"The student is not involved in patient care activities at this time," read the short statement from Paul Faria.

When Re pressed Faria on whether the student faced further punishment, he responded that she was placed on a leave of absence. He also included a long statement of apology from the student.

"I am writing this as an apology for a very irresponsible tweet that I sent on Twitter that I highly regret," said Del Rosario in part.

"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. 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," she claimed.

"In an emotional moment, I sent the tweet without thinking about the consequences. I am truly sorry for poorly representing our school and our health system," she added.
