Hand Injury At Work Risk Assessment

Hi. I recently injured my finger at work. The cut is not deep but not superficial either. It was bleeding quite a bit. My coworker rushed me to another room and then simply grabbed a clean tissue from the lobby and gently put it on my finger to make it stop bleeding and also using it as a bandage. He just put the tissue on my finger. He didn't press or directly touched my finger.

Was this situation a potential risk for HIV and Hep C transmission knowing that he did touch the tissue before putting on my finger and my finger was still bleeding at that time? I carefully watched his hands/finger and saw no blood on the tissue whatsoever but I am still really concerned about what happened.

Thank you.

A drunk lady wiped her profusely bleeding palm or hands on my forearm

So I was walking last night along the sidewalk when a random drunk lady whose hand was bleeding profusely ( she hid her hand in her jacket) suddenly touched my forearm with her bleeding hand. I got so much blood on my forearm which i then washed to a nearby restaurant's washroom, it took me couple of mins to get to the washroom so it kind of dried on my forearms. And While i was about to go in the restaurant to wash she ran away with her friend and wont answer my question if she has any disease like hiv or any bloodborne disease. I have a small wound on the side of my posterior palm that i covered with bandage. Some blood stained the side of the bandage but not on top of the wound. I have no other wound on my forearm except very few redspot (like one or two petechiae) Probably it was around 15 ml of blood that stained my right forearm that i washed. I tried not to get my wound wet so as not to get any blood on it. Im not sure if a little water went to my wound while washing. It is small wound from burn that hasnt healed yet. Im just a bit worried. also im not sure if small bits of blood went anywhere else in my skin/ Should i get checked asap? What are the risks of getting hiv if ever she was hiv positive who doesnt take any medication. please help.

Road traffic accident contact

Hi, iam Ramesh from india
I had a small wound (2mm) at the dorsal side of my left middle finger with little blood. After half an hour while travelling , saw a man (lorry driver) got injured at road. He had multiple cut wounds but blood has already dried. I helped him by holding his hands and legs. Some amount of sweat and mud over his body came into contact with my palms but not at my wound. After that i washed my hands with plain water.
Iam afraid that his sweat could have mixed with his blood and it would have come into contact with my wound during hand wash. Also high number of lorry drivers in india have hiv, though iam not sure about this person..
Kindly advise..

Blood on toilet seat


I hope I can get some reassurance on this matter. Last Friday, I entered a female bathroom cubicle as soon as someone else vacated it and I neglected to check if there was anything on the toilet seat before sitting down to urinate. When I got up, I noticed there were some dried red stains on the seat which may or may not be blood. I'm now afraid that I might have actually sat on fresh blood and the reason why I didn't see the liquid blood was because my buttocks might have rubbed up against it. I was wondering if there was any risk HIV transmission from this action. I didn't check if I had any cuts on the part my buttocks that came into contact with the blood but I would think if there was a deep, open wound that was gushing with blood I'd have felt some sort of pain but I didn't. Was wondering if the HIV virus could be contracted from superficial fresh cuts coming into contact with fresh blood on a surface (this would be the worst case scenario in my situation). Would really appreciate a response on this and whether I need to get myself tested.

Concerned About Touching HIV Blood With Bare Hands

I work in public safety. I responded to a car crash where the victim had aids. I touched his arm without a glove. I did not notice any fresh blood or open cuts on him. I did not have any open cuts on my hands. Is there any risk factor for transmission? I'm concerned that I did not see any fresh or dried blood and I touched it with my bare hands.

Thank you.

Thumb poked with scalpel


At work I was using a scalpel and felt a sharp poke on my dorsal thumb, I was wearing sterile gloves on top of regular gloves (two barriers before skin). I immediately checked to see if my gloves were broken and if I was bleeding. Filling both gloves with water, there was no leak in either glove. I was not bleeding at all, and putting rubbing alcohol on my skin did not cause irritation, so I do not think my skin was broken. Patient was extremely low risk for HIV. Most of my colleagues told me that it was not an exposure, should I be worried?

Cigarette Burn!


I know there are more question about this but with a lot of factors, I only want to ask if a stranger in a bar burn me with a cigarette in my hand it's possible to get infected.

Thank You
