Needle Stick Follow up

I recently blogged about a scalpel stick injury I received while working last year and I felt it was time for a follow-up. I sent letters to my state senator, Adam Kline, and to my state representatives, Sharon Tomiko Santos and Eric Pettigrew, outlining the incident and how frustrating it was not to be able to test the source patient without his consent.

This morning, Evan and I listened to our messages on the answering machine (we haven’t been home much over the past two days), and we found that Senator Kline had called me on Friday afternoon! He received my letter and has reviewed the statute referring to specific incidents such as this, and has asked me to call him for further discussion. So on Monday, I will do just that. 🙂

I am delighted that, not only did my senator actually read my letter (one never knows!), but took the time to call me and to research the issue a bit. I will keep you posted…
