Are you asking if you can get infected with a needle that has infected dry blood on it? if so to answer ur question, No. The virus dies within hours of exposure to air and when the blood dries out the virus dies with it. Only if it was highly contaminated and very very recent after the blood dried there could be a chance of infection, but close to zero.
