Please read the following information and help me undrestand how is it possible this health care workers got infected if its claimed Hiv virus weakness onces outside the body:
I'm a medical practitioner, was securing iv access for a patient with a background of rape 19 days ago...i was trying to cap the cannula and felt the needle scratch through my gloved hands precisely the thumb. After securing the line. I examined it..didn't see any scratch...It didn't bleed even when I applied pressure. I'm worried out of my mind. Should I be?
