Last night I was helping some paramedics attend to a causlty who had suffered a heart attack. He was in his 60's. When they left there was some rubbish lying around so I helped clean it up. Some of the items were the lancets used to measure blood glucose or similar device.
At the time I did not notice a prick but today there is a slight discomfort to the tip of my index finger and it is tender to touch or massage the area.
Am I just being paranoid I dont know, but it is definantly starting to get me worried.
What should I do??? What are the chances of something being transferred? Any other options???
someone can never be too careful.it would be in your best interest to go to the doctor for a check up. if something is wrong and they catch it early it can mean the diffirence between life and death. but dont worry, you should be fine though
