less confusion about preventing HIV after a needlestick
You'll see less confusion about preventing HIV after a needlestick.
There are 1000 accidental needlesticks a DAY in U.S. hospitals...and a 1-in-300 chance of transmitting HIV if the source is positive.
Who will get prophylactic treatment? Expect meds to be started in anyone who is stuck by a needle from an HIV-positive patient...and possibly if the patient's HIV status is unknown because the needle is from a sharps container, etc.
