HIV Concern

Hello,
I work in law enforcement and the other day at the hospital two hiv patients had been in a fight and had blood on thier hands and faces.  When I entered the room I used my forearm to open the door, I'm not sure if any blood was on the door.  I spoke with the parties and left.  When I got home I noticed a cut on the same forearm, I had a long sleeve shirt on at the time.  Was I at risk, do I need testing.
Thanks.

No you were not at risk and no you do not need to test.

You had no risk and most officiers wear protective gloves these days.Hiv becomes inactive once exposed to air and therefore is unable to infect you.
