Hi everyone. I am here because i am a little worried about HCV.
At the end of February of this year, I was doing my training as a dialysis tech in a dialysis center, and when i finished connecting a pt to the lines, i did not realized that i had blood on my gloves. When i took the first glove off i had a fresh smear of blood in the palm of my hand right below my wrisk... It was maybe one centimeter in lengh, Very small. I washed my hand right away and i applied some sanitizer on the smear site to see if it did sting due to any small scratch, but it did not. What are my chances of contracting HCV.
I believe that that specific pt has HCV.
Thank you for your help and advice.
I belong to the lyme disease group. So i do experience fatigue and muscle and join pain.
