A small cut...

Hello to all!

Last night we had a young man came to our gate with a cut on his finger... he had been working at the school up the mountain and apparently got a machete cut!

A nice slice! It was pretty deep, but very clean.

Anita sterilized the cut and surrounding area.

Butterfly bandages... the instrument of choice in a situation like this!
It wasn't bad enough for stitches, yet big enough a normal bandage wouldn't do.

After the butterfly bandage went a large standard bandage
and then some

All finished! He's going to be coming back to the clinic today
for a fresh wrap and bandage. He should be healed up in no time!
