I accidantally had needle stick after given some else heparin shot at work and find out that person is HIV negative result but have HX of MRSA of the wound. I know I should not be that worry since that person has nagative result. I could not sleep all night and I'm still concern should I need to follow up any test for HIV for myself anyway since HIV have window period? and how would I know if I got MRSA or not? thank you
