What is your take on this issue?

Aug 4, 1999

Hello Dr,

What is your take on the person was being infected by the nurse who draw his blood? In reality, what is the like hood of being infected by that a little amount of blood on or inside the needle? Wouldn't this episode scare a lot of people from donating blood or even a simple blood test at the hospital?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Since I don't know the specifics, I won't comment on this case directly because of the legal aspects surrounding it. MH
