Is anyone aware if there is any legislation requiring a junkie who has dirty hype that sticks a police officer or any one else to get tested for HIV, HEP-B, HEP-C, ext.

There is no legislature or anything else that can be used to force someone to submit to a test in that circumstance. The best you can do is try and persuade the person ( or have the hospital attempt)to voluntarily submit to a blood test.

It is amazing how many people "volunteer" to submit to this test after "persuasion."

I have heard it rumored that in the eastern part of the state, failure to tell a PO that your carrying a needle sometimes reults in broken ribs. :wink:

Dave, you never cease to amaze me. Here I am yelling at the screen "just punch him in the nose, get your own sample", as I scroll down the thread and get to your post. Wonderful idea..... =D>

Guys

as a registered nurse this is my advice regarding this matter.

1.If you get stuck, first go straight to the ER immediately and start on the preventative cocktail it can greatly reduce your chances of serro-converting. I personally wouldn't even wait for the blood results before starting.

2. Lock an addict up and they will agree to anything in 20 minutes or less. So end result you shouldn't have much problem getting the person to agree to give blood.

3. If the person is not coherent I am sure the ER Doc in his wisdom will draw all appropriate blood work for the best intrest of his patient.

Stay safe

I'm sure after a needle stick, #3 can easily be achieved...
