Splash of blood tinged normal saline
Sep 13, 2012

I was injecting normal saline into an iv line for a child. The saline splashed on my face and am not sure if it touched my eye. But I think it may have. If the child is HIV positive, do I need PEP? Am so anxious

Response from Mr. Chambers

I'm not medically trained and am qualified to answer. Direct this to one of the medical personnel on this sit.
