"Do I need to worry to catch any blood borne diseases?"
This is just an hiv prevention forum. The only non-sexual risk for hiv is sharing hollow needles that you use to inject with because hiv is fragile and is instantly dead in air. You didn't do that so don't worry about hiv anymore. You should stop worrying that the hospital gave you a disease and move on.
