This whole thread of responses is painful to read. You can't just "steal" the pain killers nor do they really stop the sting, avoiding cleaning the cut means your hands aren't getting cleaned in that area, and you are supposed to still sanitize after taking the gloves off. All I can say is soap and water as often as possible.

I did that... I cut my index finger right on the ride of my top knuckle on the palm side of my hand, could see right through to the bone. Me being deathly afraid of hospitals, super glue that shit,(; Doesnt hurt OP. I promise,(:

Actually, that's what superglue was invented for. It was an army medic thing. Personally, I'm too freaked out by the smell to use it on myself, but I guess if I were desperate...

Idk I'm with 107... I would be skeptical to have a hospital employee with a potential germ infested bandaid touching me. Then again, every "water-proof" bandaid I've used hasn't been very reliable :/

You can't wear the band aid at the hospital, it's not sterile and will come off after a few washes. I don't know what you call it over there but in Aus I use 'opsite', it'll still come off after about 10 washes but it's a clear second skin that won't harbour micro-organisms.

You don't use the same pair of gloves your whole shift; you throw them away and get new ones between each patient. You're also supposed to wash your hands or at least use antibacterial disinfectant between patients.

You know surgeons can have nurses to help them out, and soap does burn when you get it in a cut sometimes, either way she still has to sanitize her HANDS not her gloves. You wouldn't want a nurse to have dirty hands under sanitized gloves touching you, and the equipment while you were in a hospital now would you?

ejones - Everyone who comes into contact with any patient in the hospital is supposed to wear gloves AND use either soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitiser before and after touching the patient. It makes no difference if that person is a nurse, doctor, or custodian.
