Possible Exposure from blood stain on bed
      #271545 - 04/07/13 02:09 AM

On 2/10/13 I went to the ER for stomach pains, diarrhea, nausea and chills. When I was getting my blood drawn the nurse had to step out for 2-3 minutes and placed the gloves on the bed. While I was waiting I noticed a blood stain where the gloves were. He used the gloves and took my blood. The DR gave me some medication that caused me to be sleepy and have blurry vision. Is it any way possible that the blood could have got into the wound. I don't remember seeing blood on the gloves. . I ask this because 2 days later I felt sore around my neck, armpits, and groin with a bump under each arm. This lasted for about 5 days. Now I keep wondering if the blood could have got on the gloves and into my blood from the shot. I know this sounds stupid but this has been on my mind. I want to get tested in May after 3 months is this even necessary.

Even if all the 'cloudy' details you have were true. HIV is not transmitted outside the body. This is not a risk.
