RE: doctor's office
Jan 8, 2002

Well, I guess part of my question was out of an irrational fear (nurse giving shot in buddocks without gloves). But ny other question was: should I be concerned about a nurse giving a shot without gloves (needlestick)?

Response from Ms. Breuer

Be concerned about a nurse DRAWING blood without gloves, but a skilled nurse armed with a hypodermic to GIVE a shot is just giving a shot. I'm not sure what "needlestick" has to do with it. Help?

Handshake (I'll not ask again)
