I suppose it was a right of passage, though definitely one I could have done without.

I got splashed at work tonight - It's not even a good story. I was taking care of my patient and some of his blood splashed in my eye. So I had to go down to the Emergency Room, fill out some paperwork, pee in a cup, have some blood drawn, and have some of my patients blood drawn. An hour later (I was shocked it wasn't longer), I was back on the unit working.

I got a call later that everything was negative.

There are lots of risks we encounter everyday: HIV, Hep B, Hep C, MRSA, VRE, Nec Fasc, etc. The risks are low though. They were tonight anyway.

Okay, let's not let that happen again.
