As A Result Of Being Punctured By An Insulin Injection Needle?
afternoon, I want to ask a friend who was pierced by a patient’s former insulin novorapid needle but the inside of the needle was punctured not the outside which is usually inserted into the patient’s tendon, and he did not know if there was a history of infectious disease from that patient.
Any punctured by a needle that has previously been used to inject other people's body tissues or is exposed to other people's body fluids is at risk of transmitting infectious diseases through blood and body fluids. Even if your friend is stuck on the inside of a needle, it does not guarantee that your friend is free from the risk of contracting the disease.
Your friend should immediately report the incident to the health facility where the patient is being treated, so that further evaluation can be made of any risks that might occur to your friend. However, if the incident occurred outside a health facility (hospital, clinic, doctor's practice, medical lab, etc.) then your friend is expected to immediately consult a doctor so that further assessment can be carried out regarding his current situation.
For this reason, it is expected to be careful when dealing with or working with needles so that they do not get punctured, especially if the needle is not sterile because it has the potential to transmit various diseases. And if this incident happens again or someone else experiences the same thing at a health facility, please immediately report this to health workers to get further procedures in accordance with operational standards at the agency. If this incident occurs outside a health facility, you should immediately consult a doctor so that further assistance can be given to minimize the occurrence of disease transmission
