Patient :I am a nursing student and when I was giving a lovenox shot to a patient she flinched and the needle bounced on her skin and pricked my finger. I'm not sure if she had blood coming out if her skin but I think she didn't but I did bleed. The patient was a 90 year old and tested negative for hiv hep b and hep c. I still can help but worry, should I be worried or I'm just being paranoid
