HIV pos nanny
Jan 29, 2006

I just found out that the nanny that cares for my 1year and 3 year old is hiv positive. I'm afraid that she may have unknowingly passed it on to them. She bathes,feeds and does their nappy changes. I will be getting them tested, but please me what are the chances of them being infected by her?

Response from Dr. Sullivan

There is no cause for concern; HIV cannot be spread by the kinds of contact a nanny has with children, including bathing, feeding and nappy changes; JLS.
