I have been in and out of hospital since November 2012...I have had kidney infections, pneumonia, c diff, and upper respitory infections. I am also a quadriplegic since 2002. During all the tests they have ran, can h.i.v. Aids, or an std have been detected with any of my blood work?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
You are quadriplegic and hence you are as such more susceptible for infections like pneumonia and urinary tract infection.
Please get a post voiding ultrasound of kidney ureter and bladder to see residual urine which is a common cause.
As far as the HIV is concerned you should contact the hospital lab for the reports.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
