Glass Cut

by Bethany

Step 1

If it's serious, call 999.

Step 2

Look for danger - you don't want to cut yourself.

Step 3

Never remove glass from the wound.

Step 4

If there is no glass in the wound, then put pressure onto it with a tissue.

Step 5

If there is a lot of bleeding get them to sit down.

Step 6

Apply direct pressure using a pad using fingers.

Step 7

If there is something in the wound, apply pressure either side of the wound, NOT directly on it.

Step 8

If you can, raise the injured part.

Step 9

If they start going into shock, raise their legs.
