transmission of hepatitis c
May 10, 2008

I was exposed to vomit in my eye, can I contact hep c and what should be done first after exposer

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you are a health care worker, you should always go to Employee Health to report any type of exposure as a formality. With that said, I do not think you should have any concerns about this exposure. I would not test.

Do i need to have a test too?
how can you?
