another needle question

hi
i asked this question privately and didnt get a response. It's simialr to worried's question.
I am 59 year old  and got stuck by a needle picking up my dog's poop from the park. The needle stayed on my finger till i pulled it off. There was some blodd inside the syringe so dont know how long it's been there. My finger bled a little.

is your guy's repsonse to this similar to Worried's scenario? should I seek PEP? Is this still a sctach or cut or since the needle stayed on that means something else
I would just like an answer please
