|Hep c from safety pin
Jul 4, 2010
I bought a new jacket from my child from a sales rack yesterday. When I got home I pulled out the jacket only to feel a sharp prick only finger. There was an open safety pin in the side of the jacket where the price tag had fallen off. I am worried that someone else or a lot of people may have stuck them selves with the safety pin while looking through the racks. Is this worth worrying about? My finger did not seem to actively bleed but it did penetrate my skin.

I would not worry about this incident as an issue for HCV.
