HIV from drawing blood????
I went to the doctor and got blood drawn for labs and a woman came I'N with gloves But the index finger wad cut out one of the gloves so she could properly feel my vein with the skin on skin contact. I don't know if this woman had cut her finger previously or washed her hands or anything. Anything could have been on her finger. Is it possible that anyone could catch HIV given the situation i just put forth given the fact she could have had an open wound or recent cut. She does draw blood so she could have touched someone elses blood on accident. Everyone doesn't take every precaution they are suppose to. So again is it possible to catch HIV In any of these situations????
Please answer and tell me why for closure  please. thanks

No ! HIV does not transmit, the way you are thinking. You never had a risk.

Touching your arm with blood on her finger will not transmit HIV

What if the same place she put her finger is the same place she stuck the needle. That's my biggest worry

Its still no risk. HIV when exposed to air becomes inactive, unable to infect.
Your risk would be from unprotected sex, sharing needles for drug use, or mother to child
