I was wondering, do you routinely send these kids home with mitten casts and can we send routine nail bed lacerations home without it? My question stems from the same scenario. Kid slams the finger in the door, ends up with a tuft fracture or partial avulsion, or do we fundamentally treat these kids different? I know it is not the same question being asked but I figure I ask.
Thank you for your help
