Carissimo Dottor Roberto
May 31, 2006
Dr Bob, can you please answer this for me? If an Hiv+ person sits on a chair and gets punctured by a staple protruding from the chair causing him to bleed and i sit on that same chair 5 minutes later and get punctured by the same staple or pin or whatever, am I at any risk of becoming infected? Am I pazzo to worry about this? Grazie Giovanni
Response from Dr. Frascino
Are you at risk for HIV? No.
Do you need HIV testing? No.
Do you need a new chair? Oh yes!
