The Correct Answer is A

If the donor is HIV negative and asymptomatic at the time of exposure, no further HIV testing of the recipient is necessary, although some prefer additional tests for peace of mind. Prophylactic treatment is unnecessary in this situation, although it might be recommended if the donor's HIV status is unknown. As her HIV status is negative, the nurse need not follow more stringent guidelines than universal precautions.
