Needle sticks

    What did *I* do??? CRY

    What did the hospital do? as little as they possibly could....now to give them the benefit of the doubt, it was quite a few years ago.

    I received the hospital's FIRST HepB series that the employee didn't have to pay for themselves. They told me it would be $200, I told them see my lawyer... Yes that was a looooong time ago.

    Check out the "6 weeks into school" thread on this forum for a current example of facility support for this kind of on-the-job injury.
