First, see how serious the (cut) wound is based on the length of the cut and the nature of the bleeding.
Not sure? Call for medical help!
Is it a smaller home, garden and kitchen cut? Then you can get started with your first aid kit.
After washing your hands, you can proceed to taking care of the wound.
Rinse the wound with clean water and, if necessary, a disinfectant liquid. You can also let it bleed for a while so the wound can clean itself.
Which plaster you should choose depends on the type of wound, the size of the wound and the environment (if the patient often comes into contact with water, you should use a plaster from our Universal range, for example).
Always choose a plaster that covers the wound completely. Change the plaster daily or more often if it is dirty.
After (accidental) contact with body fluids, blood or mucous membranes, wash hands again with liquid soap.
After washing, disinfect the hands as well!
To dry the hands, preferably use a disposable towel.
If this is not possible, use a fresh towel (to be changed daily).
