Can you get HIV this way?

Today I was with a Gastroenterologist who made a colonoscopy to an HIV patient; the patient was under treatment, and He told me that he has indetectable viral load. Well, when the doctor pulled out the endoscope, one drop of water that came from the patient´s colon, and without visible blood, reached my arm, then I washed my arm, but Im very worried if this is a way of transmission. Please help me, because Im a lot worried.

Sorry for my english, Im from Spain. Thanks.

You had no risk--HIV becomes inactive and therefore is unable to infect you.
