Is anyone else going into/ already in surgery afraid of getting Hep C? I mean, its one disease that will quickly end your career and shorten your life too. I think I'd rather get HIV than Hep C. Especially early on in your career before you really learn how to handle instruments gracefully I can imagine its not that hard to get stuck with something sharp. Or even then there are always scrub techs that drop instruments or medical students who will have sharps in their hands. The surgical residents I worked with said they get stuck "all the time" Life is full of risks and I guess its just something I have to deal with, but I was wondering if any if my colleagues are also worried about this and their thoughts. Or am i just a scaredy cat?
