The Desire To Acquire HIV After Being Pricked By A Transfusion Needle Set Belonging To A Patient With HIV?
I wanted my friend to work as a nurse at the hospital, when I wanted to change the infusion flabot for patient b20, his hand was pierced by the tip of the transfusion set (which was clean and there was no blood) when he wanted to stick it into the infusion flab, until there was a slight scratch due to being punctured, is there a risk of infection?
HIV is a disease that is included in a sexually transmitted disease. HIV can be transmitted not only through sex, HIV can also be transmitted through body fluids such as blood.
If your friend is punctured by the transfusion needle set that has been worn on the HIV patient, even if there is no blood at the end of the transfusion set, this can also be at risk of infection. However, if you only have an abrasion, then you are usually not very likely to catch it.
However, there is still a risk of contracting HIV, therefore, it is recommended that your friends immediately go to the infection department of the hospital where your friend works, usually every hospital has a protocol if there are employees who are pricked by needles.
In addition, your friend can also see a specialist in internal medicine, so that the doctor can check on your friend's condition further. maybe later a screening examination will be carried out.
