FYL OP. As a healthcare worker myself I can attest that some ampoules are a bitch to open up whether due to poor design or manufacturing defect. Some inevitably will blow up in your fingers. I had my finger nicked a few times myself. God knows why we keep using these annoying little things.
If the ampoule feels difficult to open, I use an unopened alcohol swab as a barrier between me and the glass. There are even ampoule openers available for purchase. Sometimes they're just damn stubborn to open. Hopefully you didn't feel the effects of the adrenaline ☺
