    Risk From Careless Phlebotomist ?

    I had a blood donation yesterday, the nurse who drew my blood wore gloves but while in the process of collecting blood she went off doing other things like packaging test tube boxes and input stuff on her computer. At the end of the blood draw she folded my gauze pad before withdrew the needle, my worry is If there was surface contamination on the stuff she touched and got some blood on her gloves and then touching my gauze pad and wound, would this transmit HEP C? HIV?
