needle prick

helping a nurse give an intra muscular injection. as she withdrew the needle my hand got in the waycarefully  and my little finger was pricked a litltle but bled a lot. The patient has no blood viruses. I washed the wound carefully and squeezed blood out but as very busy I didnt go to the emergency room.This all took place 3 days ago.
