Risk from swallowing a pill dropped on dirty floor?
Oct 3, 2006
What is the risk of any type of viral infection (HIV/Hepatitis) or other bacterial infection from swallowing a pill after it was dropped on a public bathroom floor that may have deposits of blood, urine, water, etc.? Thank you in advance and keep up the great work!
Response from Dr. Frascino
The risk would be so remote as to be essentially nonexistent.
