Cuts or Lacerations (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The bottom line is to use common sense. In a perfect world of preventive medicine, people would not get into fights, shoes would always be worn outside, glass doors would not exist, the left hand would not be used as a cutting board, lawn mowers would be turned off before removing jammed material, and people would always wear seat belts. If all this occurred, Emergency Departments would see far fewer cuts.
