Final Answer :
E
Explanation :
An incident report is the correct form to complete in this situation because it documents any unexpected event that occurs, especially one that could lead to harm or has caused harm. In this case, the accidental needle stick to Bobby's mother is an unexpected event that could potentially lead to health issues, thus necessitating documentation through an incident report.
