Hello All-- just had a quick question. I recently had to get blood drawn at the hospital. The phlebotomist that took my blood put the piece of gauze they use to cover your arm with after the draw on the arm rest that you lay your arm on to give blood. I noticed afterwards they were not cleaning the arm rests after every patient. Just curious if there is any probability of transmission if there was blood on the arm rest that might have gotten on the gauze? I know it is a stringent virus that can live outside the body for a long time. If needed, I will get checked in 3 months. Thanks ahead of time.
