Good afternoon. It's a difficult question. There is certainly always a risk. Especially if the HIV needle is infected in the last stages. After a puncture, you should always squeeze out as much blood as possible and treat the wound with an antiseptic. Record the emergency in the log and report to the superior management. It is also necessary to contact the city center for the prevention of AIDS to be tested and observed there for six months. In case of HIV infection, it will be possible to prove an occupational injury with all the ensuing consequences.
How many times in our life have we injured ourselves.
Likewise, piercing a finger with a needle does not mean HIV infection, unless an HIV-infected patient was injected with this needle.
If the disease is HIV-infected at the initial stage, then the chance of being infected is zero.
In this particular case, a blood test can be shown, which can be taken anonymously
Good afternoon. It depends in which case there was a puncture. If a person used this needle in front of you (pricked himself) and you immediately made a puncture after him - that is, the risk, but minimal. It must be remembered that HIV dies quickly outside the body. In any case, you can go to your local AIDS center to have this needle tested.
There was no blood on the finger and syringe.
