Cut from bathroom door

Hi, I go to a university of a high population and I cut my finger (like a chunk off) from a sharp shard that was on the back handle of the bathroom door when I opened it to leave the washroom. What are my chances?? I am sorry if this offends any of you, but I am seriously concerned since public university bathrooms are not the "cleanest" places. Thanks.

No one here can tell you what the chances are and of what since we have no idea what was on the surface.

If you are concerned, get tested.
