While cleaning under a client's bed, a housekeeper stuck her finger with a needle. The source of the blood on the needle and how long the needle had been in the floor was not clear. Which information should the employee health nurse provide for this housekeeper? (Select all that apply.)
1. "If you start feeling bad, we will begin medications to reduce your risk of developing AIDS."
2. "The risk of getting HIV-AIDS from a contaminated needle stick is about 5%."
3. "HIV viruses cannot live long outside the body."
4. "The HIV-AIDS virus is easily killed with regular household disinfectants."
5.  "We will investigate the clients who have been in that room and will start you on medication if any of them had HIV or AIDS.

The answer is 3, 4
Rationale:
1. Prophylaxis should begin within hours.
2. The risk for developing  HIV from a contaminated needlestick is 0.03%.
3. The HIV virus requires a host to live. It does not live long outside the body.
4. HIV virus is easily killed with bleach.
5. All needlesticks are treated as if the client was HIV positive. Investigation would not be warranted, as clients may not test positive even though they have the HIV virus.
