When to call? What is a laceration of cut?
If you have injured yourself that resulted in a break in your skin, you may need your laceration (cut) to
be repaired. In addition, you will likely need your wound washed out.
Most of the time these repairs can be completed in an office setting, not the Emergency Room.
Reasons you may need to go Emergency Room include but not limited to:
Cut to your tendons
Cut that results in bleeding that can not be stopped.
Multiple injuries at the same time
Any injury outside side of a laceration you will need to call your local ER
Some pediatric (children) patients that will need sedation
