3rd time asking....PLEASE HELP A FELLOW ITALIAN OUT
Dec 1, 2006
Hello DR. Bob,
I come on here everyday to view your inspiring words. This is my 3rd attempt in asking you a question. 3 weeks ago I had a nurse draw my blood at the clinic, she wasn't wearing any gloves.....now I am afraid she put me at risk for HIV because of this....what is my risk? do I need HIV testing.....please help
Fellow Italian in need of help and advice
Thank-you Dr Bob
Response from Dr. Frascino
Your HIV risk is completely nonexistent, unless:
1. The nurse was HIV positive and actively bleeding and her fresh blood got into your veins.
2. The nurse was HIV positive and after she drew your blood, you shagged her commando style halfway to heaven and back again (the way only a true Italian can!).
But since you didn't mention either of these extenuating circumstances, I'd say once again HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
Be well. Stay well!
