That's terrible! Dig up all your carpets or get them cleaned professionally! Good luck! Or maybe wear shoes!
Fun fact, #45: the bacterium that causes tetanus infection doesn't live exclusively on rusty surfaces. The bacterium is simply anaerobic, meaning that it doesn't use oxygen, so it tends to live mostly in the ground; rusty objects are also commonly found in the ground, which leads to the belief that tetanus infection results from rusty objects puncturing the skin. Regardless of possible tacks onthe ground, though, it's still a good idea to keep your vaccine records up to date, including tetanus.
Time to vaccum your carpet and see what it picks up. It could be glass that you keep cutting yourself on and you just can't see it because it can blend in depending in the color carpet and size of glass. And shoes help in this situation.
You can't back track from the trail of blood? Maybe try a magnet, you could get lucky and it might be magnetic. Or for glass, try shining a torch down low, it might sparkle.
Haha I was actually thinking why someone would use a small piece of wood when you can use a flashlight... My bet is that it's something heavier than a shard of glass, since it didn't move when OP got cut the first time, heavy enough to still be implanted in the same spot on the carpet.
