Our expert says:
Des, you should feel it if you get pricked with a needle, but to put your mind at rest there is no chance that there was a contaminated needle in her basket. All sharp objects (contaminated or not) get placed in special containers as soon as they have been used to protect everybody in the hospital. These containers have thick wall and the needles can’t penetrate them. So that’s one less thing to worry about. :-) Good luck.
