The former Sheffield United assistant manager was not pleased to see the former Manchester United and Preston North End hit-man play an hour for his country in Wednesday's 1-0 home friendly win over Estonia.
The Whites were concerned that the 26-year-old might do more damage to an Achilles' problem, with the Championship side having sent a medical update to the Irish FA regarding Healy's fitness.
Blackwell let out his frustrations on Northern Ireland boss Lawrie Sanchez regarding his handling of Healy in midweek.
"We sent over the medical advice and he (Sanchez) decided to ignore it," Blackwell said.
"There will be a time when I shall repay that faith."
