    Peritoneal Dialysis

    Hi,

    I was helping my aunt with her peritoneal dialysis, and I used this special soap to watch my hands, so we don't have to use sterile gloves. However, while opening her catheter, some fluid came out and a little got on my hand. After I hooked her up, I immediately washed my hands. Should I be worried that I can catch something from the fluid getting on my hand (HIV, Hep C, etc)?
