Recently had a work-related accident in the health clinic which caused patient's blood to splash into my eyes. So the next step is for me and the said patient to have our blood taken simultaneously and to be sent for HIV and HepB testing. Because I trust that my colleagues are well-versed in blood withdrawal, I let one of them take my blood while the staff nurse takes the patient's blood.

This is what I got. A bruised entry site that is still very bruised after 5 days post withdrawal.

No, I do not siffer from bleeding tendencies.
