It is up to the hospital to manage your care. No one here knows what they are doing. Only risk you run is from shared needles that are used to inject so if they didn't do that you are safe. Blood tests draw blood so can't cause hiv because hiv is dead in air so that needle would have dead hiv on its surfaces.
