In brief: You can ask

You can ask your primary doctor to test you for HIV.
If you went to the hospital after fainting they might do blood work but they would probably not routinely test for HIV unless there was some other reason to do so. (This would include you asking them to test for it). Most local and state public health departments also have HIV testing available. In Florida call 850-245-4334 for assistance.
