How would you know the patient before you is HIV+?
So this Dr put something in your mouth to hold your tongue down? It is not a HIV risk.
Thanks for your reply. The staff nurse told me that the patient before me is a HIV+ patient having sores and ulcers in his mouth. Since the Dr used the spoon like equipment to supress the tongue of the HIV+ patient, the spoon like equipment might have touched his sores and ulcers. Since the spoon like equipment is used on my throat, I doubt whether my inflammed throat will transmit the virus to me. Will inflammed throat can receive the virus. Please help me. I am sleepless after this.
