Possible exposure via fresh open cut and fresh blood
I am a peace officer at a Mens shelter and I have had a few encounters with potential contamination. However, this one is a bit more serious. I and my co workers was trying to restrain a client and in the mist of that, he proceeded to punch the wall. When he punched the wall, we were finally able to calm him down. However, my co workers made me aware that I had cuts on my arm. My co workers had blood all over them from the guy punching the wall so hard that he was bleeding from his hand. I apparently cut my self on the floor model air (which for some reason has very sharp edges on it) conditioner while trying to restrain. My cuts were somewhat deep and I am unsure if any of his blood got into any of my cuts due to the fact that I was bleeding too(one of my cuts is a gash where u can see the white meat). Here is the thing. I am unsure of his status and medical staff will not supply me with his info due to laws that protect him (which I understand). Here is the fun part: I go to the hospital and they tell me that I am pregnant and got conflicting answers from doctor and hiv specialist. One said take the pep meds the other said otherwise. This happened 2 months ago. I ended up having an ectopic pregnancy and lost the baby and 2 months later, I am afraid. Can I get a test now?? What are my chances of contracting hiv if he was hiv positive???
