I have been trying to look this up via the web, but am having difficulty because of many varying opinions, facts, and anecdotes that all seem to be mixed together, and I am very upset right now and unable to think well.
Are there any statistics for the chance of HIV infection if one is deeply pricked with a needle infected from an end-stage AIDS sufferer? I know this is vague, and there must be a myriad of variables as well. I’m sorry I cannot tell you more details.
And when one knows that this happens, I understand that there is a certain procedure of drugs, or something, to try and prevent infection of the person pricked. Can someone tell me what is normally done? That is, what drugs are taken and in what order, and when are you tested, and how many negative test results must you have before you know you are “safe”? Are there any statistics on health care workers who have been badly pricked and their chance of HIV infection?
