Got Tested for HIV, But Now I'm afraid That The Medical Assistant Used The Needle On Someone Else TOO!!?
Should I think This Way, I feel like They already used the Needle on someone else too? Is there a way on catching HIV If the Doc Used The needle Twice?

marguerite c
yuck where did you go to get tested? try gettin tested somewhere else to double check. there is a chance you could get it through a shared needle. but dont go back to that place. that is way out of line!

I doubt they used the needle twice.....Especially when testing AIDS

They do not use the same needle twice. They expose of it into a sharps container immediately following your blood test.

Doctors and doctors offices and medical assistants, etc. do not do that.

You can get it if you were out using drugs and using the same needle to do drugs.

You were in a sterile environment and you were there for a test, not to use or share needles for drugs.

You will be fine in that aspect. Relax and have faith. I do.

IF he used it on someone before you who did have it, then i'd be worried.

If you do, you could probably sue though.

I wouldnt worry about it. If you are concerned about this in the future, make sure you see them open the needle and all of the equiptment that they are using. If they say no then leave. You have the right to see them open new tools.

Nah this would not have happened!! dont even give it another thought......all members of the medical profession are well aware of the implication of using a needle twice.....all needles are disposable and are strictly for one use only before they are disposed of!!!

keep your head up
You could if he used it twice and there were fluids from an infected person on the needle. It's unlikely that he used the needle twice.

I can ASSURE you....they did not use the needle twice. Needles are all diposable, and placed in the "sharps container" for disposal when the container is full.

Don't even give it a second though....it DID NOT happen!!!!!!

I am a nurse and I can assure you the chances of you getting stuck with someone elses needle or slim to none. Are you freaked cuz of what happened in Nevada a couple of weeks ago. If so stuff like that rarely happens. All needles come prepackaged. I am willing to bet no one is going to lose their license over a contaminated needle. Honestly I really wouldn't worry about. If it bothers you next time you get blood done ask to see the needle in the package before they stick you. It is perfectly fine to do that.

the eyes have it!
it never happened

yes u can report it to health department asap

Ms. Le'Kia
Dr's and nurses don't generally use needles twice. If you pay attention when they finish, you will usually see them place them in a red container marked hazardous. Unless you went to some kind of third world clinic ( and I dont think they do it either) you don't have anything to worry about

That is not a good way to think, that goes against all health laws.

cave man
What makes you think the needle was used twice. HIV tests are scary and you are probably just a little paranoid. I am sure all is fine. However, you should learn from your fear and take the proper measures not to put yourself in this situation again. Peace and God bless.

Needles can't be used twice. There are laws against it. Not only that, they did not inject anything into you, the drew blood out of you, so there is no way you could be infected.

That would not happen.

No Doctor or Assistant will use a needle twice.

& what made you come to this conclusion?. u cant just out of the blue suspect something like this.. or are you coming up with reasons to justify why the results MIGHT come back positive??

As a Certified Medical Assistant we don't use the same needle twice.. did you see her open the needle? how bout trashing the needle in the red sharps container? those are things you should see and notice when there done or not done . the medical office has very strict laws that govern us and most of us are very professional and take our jobs very serious so that those kinds of mistakes don't happen.
