Needle prick

Sorry didn’t know where to post this. Took mums bloods using a small lancet 48 hours ago and forgot to throw it away after I took her blood. This morning I went to put a new needle in and managed to prick my finger on the used lancet from 48 hours ago. It bleed and I immediately washed it in warm water and soap and then alcohol gel.   Do I need to go get tested for anything or not. Many thanks for your help.
