Hi everyone,I had a needle stick injury from an insulin pen. When I disposed of the needle in the sharps, I actually touched the end (the end opposite of where the patient was injected), and stuck myself. It bled a little, but only when I squeezed it. The patient was a child, so that makes me think the odds of infectious disease transmission are already lower, however he immigrated from a third world country. So, I'm honestly not sure if that increases his risk or not? What worries me the most is that I am breastfeeding! I already talked to my pediatrician, who said it was fine to continue as long as I didn't think the family was involved in any "risky" behaviors like drug usage, which I don't think they are... Basically, I want to know, what would other nurses do in this situation? Would you stop breastfeeding? I have been reading about HIV transmission rates being especially high when antibodies are first produced and it's got me very paranoid now any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
