I work at a clothing retailer and today an elderly Middle Eastern woman fell and began bleeding profusely. I’m only 17 years old and have never really had any first aid training. I felt really bad so I jumped into action and did the best I could. I got gloves and some bandages from our office and helped her. There was a lot of blood, but I don’t think I came into contact with it through the gloves. After I finished helping her, I immediately went to wash my hands with antibacterial soap and took a break. It was then I noticed there was blood (still wet) on my shirt. I changed clothes and washed my hands again. I have a small cut on my pointer finger that’s mostly healed as well as some dry skin. I’m very worried about what my risk for a blood borne disease might be through this exposure. If anyone could give me info I would appreciate it!
