    Needle stick

    I was staying in a hotel and right as I was going into the bathroom I stepped on the tip of a hypodermic needle that was broken off sticking up in the carpet. I was shocked of course and jumped up came back down and stuck it again! Then trying to get the needle oot of the carpet I stuck my finger! I was panicked!!! My question is there was blood on the ceiling right above where I was stuck which we didn't see till later! This was right after an airplane trip from Mexico and it was 9:30 pm.
    QUESTION: How long do I need to have blood tests done to check and see if I got anything from the tip of the needle? It's about a little over then a quarter of a inch long and a small guage. I have already had two blood works done how many years do I have to worry? I'm really afraid???
