Poison and Venom

So in the English language, a snake technically cannot be poisonous, it can only be venomous.

But if you're bitten by a venomous snake, are you poisoned? I've never heard any other word for it. Does someone know a proper word, or is "poisoned" all-inclusive as far as injuries go?
