    Got peed on from a patient. The urine got on my arm and I washed with soap and water right away. No cuts or sores on my arm. Should I be worried?

    Well urine is not always sterile and can carry bacteria and other things, but if you washed it off with no cuts, intact skin what is it you are worried about?
    Does your patient have a history of something in their urine

    I work in the ER and get urine on me all the time (ha ha). I wouldn't worry if you cleaned yourself up right away.
