splashes in eyes

  1. This may be a stupid question, but while cleaning a pts nails in clinical I had bath water splash in my eyes-I am assuming this is not a big deal since it was not bodily fluids (urine, blood,etc.) am I correct on this?

    I doubt anything will result of it. Heck, I splashed patients urine in my eyes and nothing has happened.. lol.

    How worried I would be would depend on what the patient was in for. If they are in for a gallbladder surgery, probably no big deal. If they were in for MRSA - BIG deal. Follow what I'm saying?
