Does HIV transmit those ways?

Hello,sorry for my bad English because it is not my main language. I had 2 situations that made me crazy and worry.

1. I have friend.I don’t know his HIV status but according to his saying he has lots of  suspicious relations like unprotected sex with few eskorts. So he had cut his finger while his finger was bleeding I stick bandage on it. By the time I have hangnail cut because of my addict. My addict is biting my hangnail. That day I had bite my hangnail and it bled for a while and dried. When I stick bandage my finger hangnail cut was dried and has my dried blood on it. So if his blood touch my hangnail cut that has my dried blood on it does hiv transmission occur?

2. A rusty nail cut my hand. I went to hospital and a nurse made me tetanus vaccine. She stick bandage on her hand after she made vaccine,she put bandage that was on her hand on my bleeding vaccine wound. I have looked her hand where was bandage on there was not any bleeding wound however there is a pinkish spot like new pimple. If her blood touch bandage that she put on my bleeding vaccine spot does hiv transmission occur ?Because she immediately put this bandage on my bleeding vaccine spot.Does HIV transmission occur?

May you explain detailed because English is not my male language but I want understand.

Thank you  AnxiousNoMore.However, I have searched a lot and they say Hiv infection can occurs if there was open wound.So what is open wound.Is it wound that bleeding when other persons blood touch.I mean like my first situation.In my first situation, when my friend blood touch my wound.By time my wound has dried blood on it and it was not bleeding.So my wound include open wounds term? And the my second situations every different websites says different datas. Some of them says hiv virus dies 1-2 min on air.Other says immediatly.even some of them says 10 min.So nurse stick that bandage instantly.I mean miliseconds after she made vaccine.To sum up,should I worry?

HIV does not enter the bloodstream via minor cuts and scrapes that do not require immediate medical attention.  If the wound were sufficiently deep to allow entry of HIV, you would be at the hospital getting it stitched up.

You have ZERO risk of getting HIV by touching anyone, or anything, no matter what.
The first step to peace is to stop Googling cold turkey because you will find someone who tells you that you can die of anything you ask.  No one gets hiv in the way you worry or else the whole world would be infected.

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  ( clothing, maybe body fluids from nurse, nail, mouth, etc.). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you say "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either. You can do what you did any time and be safe.
