I am an RN (and I'm 4 months pregnant) and one of my patients who was 27 years old & HIV+ had a past medical history of acquiring CMV when he was 7 years old and became blind because of it. I was told by one of the nurse practitioners that it would not be a problem to care for this patient as long as I practiced standard precautions.....
I am very worried that I was around this patient although I had gloves and a mask on while in the room (the pt was also + for the flu).
Am I driving myself crazy over this?
