Patient : Hello I work as a Theatre porter at a hospital and was mopping the floor after surgery when some of the mop water splashed on my face and a spit went into my eye. I do not know any of the patients histories and was not warned of anything of concern by others. I have had the hep B vaccine and am immune. Should I have a HIV and Hep B test. I cant stop thinking about it and am worried. Should I get tested or is the possibility of catching anything so low I dont need to worry.
