Can you acquire HIV from getting scratched with nail in wall in a home of Hiv person? Not sure if blood was on nail but everyone seems to get stuck on it and it went through my shirt to my arm.

No. HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
