hiv in stored blood
Nov 6, 2001

if while doing a blood test(hemoglobin estimation) on a sample that had been stored over night it happens to fall on skin is there a risk

Response from Ms. Breuer

Blood falling on intact skin? No. Now, please think: if your work involves doing tests on stored blood, isn't it time you learned a lot more about HIV? You can't be safe at work if you don't know what's risky and what isn't. If you have a real exposure, how will you know? Please learn more about HIV.
