No, you weren't at risk from a discarded needle, however, you need to notify the university that needles are being disposed of improperly. They should be disposed of in an impervious box (sharp's container).
but i read that if you got stick by a medical needle
with hiv + inside it you will be infected
please can you explain to me why im not at risk
please im soo scared
and what do you mean by discarded needle
im only 25 male
i didnt notice there is a little blood come out
maybe yes maybe no
I'm very concerned and I do not remember anything
i thing no no blood come out
but lets say there is a little blood also come out?????
what is the risk
A discarded needle is one that is thrown away, and like I said, any kind of sharp medical waste (needles, scalpels, etc) are to be properly discarded in a puncture proof box. If the students are not doing this, the University should be notified.
No, it is not a risk...you are talking about a superficial break in the skin with the surface area of a needle. That's different than drug users sharing a needle and injecting the contents right into their veins.
It's not a risk...and it doesn't sound like you really are convinced you were stuck with a needle in the first place.
Hi. There is really no risk here. What nursegirl said is correct. getting poked with a needle, and directly inserting it into your vein is 2 very different thing. You do not have a risk for HIV and no testing will be required. You will be fine.
