|Please help wondering CNA
Jan 11, 2008
Hi. I am a CNA with a nursing home in my town, and I've found out that I have performed care on a resident with HIV/AIDS. My question is... Can HIV/AIDS be transferred by urine, or a bowel movement? And what if the one who has HIV/AIDS has a rash, HIV/AIDS can be transferred by mucuous membranes, am I at risk? What all ways can you get the infection in my line of work? Please help. Thanks
