Hello, About two months ago, at work, I used a syringe to remove a chemical(non hospital setting) that was needed. I reused the same syringe that was used the day before by another worker who removed the same chemical. I accidentally pricked myself with the needle. If that worker accidentally poked themselves by accident the day before, what is the risk of hepatitis/HIV?
