My daughter cut her finger about a month ago, all the way through the nail and into the finger, and though the nail pretty much kept the wound together so she did not need stitches, she did need a tetanus shot - very good advice above. You might also require an antibiotic, but hopefully it'll heal up no problem. Gonna take a while, though.

On a side note:

Don't stop a chainsaw with your hand

(that is an actual warning)

it doesnt really hurt much anymore, just sore ,and whacking it on stuff all day doesnt help, but its just there, im glad this is the worst injury ive had, everyones got much worse, when it happened another cook told me about this guy he knew that took his entire palm off practically on one not useing the guard thing, said the guy passed out right there when all the blood rose,

there is a cook wehre i work i consider the village idiot, he thought he was faster then a big electric mixer and stuck his hand in it while it was on, hes slipped with a pot of boiling water and burned both his legs bad, he thought he would show off and flip a cleaver and cathc it, he cought it right in the thumb and needed to go get stitches, hes just a moron though, hes hurt other people, i have no idea why hes still around

If you insist...

I worked at a factory that made cardboard tubes for industrial use. They would be anywhere from 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch thick and we could cut them to any (theoretical) length.

We had a job we were doing where we were making spools for a wire company. The tubes were 1/4 inch thick and we had to cut them to 1 foot long. Basically, you cut the tubes coming off the machine to around 14 feet and then somebody else does the smaller cuts. [ominous music] The machine that does the smaller cuts basically spins the tube through a razor blade at the touch of a button. The guy doing the smaller cuts that day was wearing gloves that have tiny rubber dots on the palm side to help grip things. Unfortunately, he had his right hand on the tube when he pushed the button. As the tube spun, his hand stuck to it (because of the glove) and put his hand through the razor blade. The red line in the picture below illustrates what was cut off...

I work for a hand surgeon and have seen some pretty drastic hand injuries, and almost always it involves a machine and a glove. My husband is missing the tip of his index digit from a similar accident involving a smaller machine.
