Lacerated Finger

The call came out for a lacerated finger. In plain English, a cut. When we got there our patient was sitting on the curb holding half of his right thumb in his left hand. Our patient informed us that it got caught between the chain and the sprocket on his motorcycle. He also stated that he was not on very much pain so out his finger on ice (really it was a cold pack) and we transported him to the local trauma center (with his finger). The doctors said that they had a good chance at reattaching it.

I couldn't help but think to myself that he was being a wimp. My dad cut off his finger and didn't even call 911!
