Last tuesday I took a nuclear imaging cardiac stress test. I thought I did real well for 60 yrs old. Starting blood pressure was 117/70. Was suppose to go to 90% but went to 96% with no problem before the test ended. With one minute left I was injected with the radioactive dye. The following afternoon  I received a call from one of the doctors at the cardiology office indicating the nurse who was to inject the dye into my IV scratched himself with the needle before he injected the dye into my IV and he was being tested. The doctor said my primary physican had been notified. It\'s been one week now and I haven\'t heard from anyone. What should I do next?
