RE: Medical Intern with possible exposure

Aug 3, 2011

Dear Dr. Bob,

Thanks so much for your advice and encouragement for me as a new intern. I, myself, feel sorry for July hospitalized patients. I would have reported it to occupational health but I knew that he is +ve 2 days after the incident. In the future, I will definitely follow your advice. Back to the last accident, taking in consideration there was no visible skin break on my hand and no blood on the IV push port, do I need to worry about it?

I greatly appreciate your feedback.

Best, New Intern

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi, New Intern.

From the information provided, your occupational exposure was essentially a non-exposure! Neither worry nor HIV testing is warranted.

You're welcome!

Dr. Bob
