"Good care for dog bite"
Posted by jaybite (as ),
What happened: Whilst trying to save an elderly lady's dog from being savaged by another, I stepped in. The dogs are now happy and well, but unfortunately I was bitten on the wrist. My wrist was punctured a total of 6 times, 2 of which were rather deep, the worst exposing a large blood vessel.
Care given: first I went to Gainsborough hospital but after having the affected area cleaned was asked to go instead to Lincoln hospital as she believed that tendons may have been damaged. Thankfully they made Lincoln hospital aware of my situation. Once I arrived at Lincoln I didn't have to wait long. Strangely I was denied my x Ray and tetanus booster that the doctor recommended, as the nurse noticed I still had 2 and a half months before it was due. And I didn't think she was made aware of the x Ray that had been booked. But other than that the nurse was gentle but thorough and I was bandaged up well.
