Quick questions

Any help Would be greatly appreciated.  I'm still a bit nervous from a blood test I had recently. The phlebotomist never changed gloves between patients. If she had any blood from a hepatatis exposed patient before me or if she had a hepatatis and had a puncture in her glove and had either touched the puncture wound or needle itself could she have given me any form of hepatatis? I've heard blood borne diseases such as this are not transmitted this way or can even survive exposure air or environment. Can anyone further explain and help ease my mind??

Turn her in for not changing gloves, ask for a hep C test at their expense, and ease your mind. Hope that doesn't sound cruel, but if you are that freaked out, go get tested. I just finished 48 weeks of Hep C treatment. Get tested if you have any doubts.
