FYL OP. As a healthcare worker myself I can attest that some ampoules are a bitch to open up whether due to poor design or manufacturing defect. Some inevitably will blow up in your fingers. I had my finger nicked a few times myself. God knows why we keep using these annoying little things.


Yep I did the same thing last week! And after 5 years of not realising, the surgeon mentioned there is a little dot on one side of the top where you should crack the ampule AWAY from. Just in case you didn't realise it either!

If the ampoule feels difficult to open, I use an unopened alcohol swab as a barrier between me and the glass. There are even ampoule openers available for purchase. Sometimes they're just damn stubborn to open. Hopefully you didn't feel the effects of the adrenaline ☺

I don't really think there is a "should or shouldn't" about getting cut by things on accident.

Unless you were attempting to make a pun, in which case better luck next time.

Well at least you know you're going into the right line of work. that way you can fix yourself up everytime you're clumsy enough to hurt yourself.... or maybe that means you're going into the wrong one....
