I do know that when you wear gloves and you do get punctured by a sharp, the gloves act as a barrier for some of the bloodborne pathogens the needle may carry. It helps to minimize the risk of getting a bloodborne disease, but not completely. Also I do know that the risk of get HIV is 0.3 percent. Or 1 in 30 chance.
