When your child falls and gets a cut, follow these tips
from Dr. Norman Rowe:

  • Above all, remain calm. Your child will be upset enough for both of you. The parent or caregiver has to be the voice of reason and calm in any emergency.
  • Don’t be alarmed by bleeding. All cuts bleed, especially about the face and hands. These are very vascular areas of the body. Apply pressure with a clean gauze pad or paper towel napkin to the injured area. Pressure for 15 minutes usually stops most bleeding.
  • If the cut is deeper than 4 millimeters or the thickness of two nickels stacked on top of each other, or on a cosmetically sensitive area of the body (face) it may require emergency stitches by a doctor.
  • If you think your child may require a doctor or are unsure, calmly visit your nearest hospital’s emergency department or call us for emergency stitches at 212-628-7300 or 917-309-7233.
  • If the injury involves a loss of a body part, finger, skin, ear, etc., gather the part and place it in a plastic bag and then place the plastic bag on ice. Do not place the body part directly in contact with the ice as this damages the tissue.
  • If you would like a plastic surgeon to treat your child, do not hesitate to ask for one at the emergency room or call Dr. Norman Rowe to meet you there for treatment by a plastic surgeon who specializes in scar-reduction.
