Healthcare workers are tested after needle sticks as is the patient. It's in the forms that you sign giving permission if someone is stuck by a needle.

They are NOT tested just for getting some blood on their fingers, because as you pointed out, HIV is not transmitted through the skin.

There is no reason for testing in this case.
