I am a nurse and I recentley gave a tb test to a hepc patient. I gave the test and fixing to put the needle in the sharps container when the neddle grazed my finger I had no blood. Do you think that I could be infected?

I think your risk is extremely low. However, whenever a health care worker has a potential exposure I always say the same advice. Go To Employee Health for evaluation. It is for your own protection.
