    Needle stick - Hepatitis C positive patient

    The needle was a butterfly needle we use to obtain blood, not sure what gauge was it but it's definitely smaller than a 22gauge. The patient's HCV ratio is 32.7 and the Hepatitis C AB is Reactive. Liver enzymes for the patient were within normal values, however.
  2. Hi Guys, I am extremely worried and need some reassurance right now. Today, I stuck myself with a dirty butterfly needle from a hepatitis C positive patient after I got blood from the patient. I immediately went to our occupational health department and underwent testing. For now, I will have to undergo testing every 6 weeks and continue for one year. I was wondering if any of you guys here had a similar experience and what are the results of your testing. Any stories or advice will be appreciated.
