blood donation got awry
      #208454 - 09/25/06 11:42 AM

I donated blood for the first time a couple of months ago during a blood drive. Once, they got my blood, they placed a piece of cotton on the hole of the arm that they used to get it. Later on, a nurse came and removed the cotton. She then placed her finger on the hole and tapped on it for a while. I din't think much of it at the time but later I thought it wasn't a very hygienic thing to do. I don't recall her having blood on her finger, but don't know, what if she had traces of blood, that are not very visible? Can I get disease? Of course I know that I couldn't have std diseases before the blood donor session since I am virgin, never did drugs etc and some time later I received the blood donor card. At the same day of the blood drive, weird men donated blood too, like a man with hundreds of ugly moles and another man, a mean , frightening gay man that asked me to do sexual acts for him in the past. To me, both of those men had questioning reasons to donate blood. Especially, the man with the moles, donated blood at about the same time with me.

Sorry, it's me again. I said she placed her finger, but I wanted to say she placed her finger without on it. No gloves or anything. Her bare finger, if it can be said so.

Hi Florida69, my question is, can I get disease from the naked finger tapping on the hole? The hole on my arm still had blood. Is there some common knownledge that says that what she did is safe, they do these things in the blood drives and so I do not need to worry?

Do you think that what happened with that blood donation session may have transmitted dangerous viruses to me?
