Re: Needle stick injury
First I would review the medical chart of the patient the needle came from if possible, as that may provide some reassurance. Hepatitis incubation can be as long as 6 months, so I think the hepatitis and HIV tests will probably be repeated at 3 and 6 months, but your medical facility should have a follow up protocol that specifies when they do repeat testing. I would just ask so you know what to expect. Chances are very low if the patient has no history of either.
