contact in the office! - donation promised

May 29, 2006

hi - in your responce please tell me how i can donate to your organization

i was at work and someone who i had seen earlier had scabs (or blood) on their fingers and i know them to be a nail biter - accidently poked me in the eye if they had blood or an open cut on their finger at the time and it made contact with my eye, would i be at risk for HIV? i immedietly wiped my face with my sleeve (which is black) so i dont know if there was blood on my face (their whole hand touched me)

should i report this? am i at risk?

thanks Dr Bob

Response from Dr. Frascino


I see no significant HIV risk form your eye-poking incident at work. You can report it if you wish, but personally I see no medical reason to do so. Nor would I suggest HIV testing be done. But again, this option is always open to you if you remain worried.

Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Thank you, please, please help!
