Thanks for your question,
First off, you should always observe universal precautions. Second, you should talk to a supervisor whenever a situation comes up that feels like an emergency.
However, in this case it sounds like there wasn't any risk for HIV.
HIV is transmitted when a body fluid from a person with HIV (blood, semen, vaginal fluids, breast milk) comes out of their body and goes immediately/directly inside someone else's body. All of that needs to happen. NONE of that happened in your case.
Hope this helps!
