I am a dental assistant in southern ohio,im very worried,last week,i got stuck with a used needle from one of our patients,in the state of Ohio,the pt can refuse to be tested,but the pt said she didnt mind.But she still hasent been bye to pick up the script to have the blood work done.We have called her and left messages,but she does not return our calls.The really bad thing is,and the reason i am worried so much,is,she just completed a drug rehab program,but i dont know what kind of drugs she was on.So anybody in my position would also be stressin and worried about this.She seemed to be a very clean person,she had nice teeth,so that tells me that she was not into crack,but you never can tell these days.(her medical history did not have any diseases marked) Does anybody know how long it takes for hiv and hep a and b to show up in blood?what am i supposed to do? worry about this and lose sleep over it until i find out,by her not coming bye to pick up the script makes me feel like she has something to hide!!! Should i be tested and how long should i wait to be tested????
