Leaked onto surroundings
Dont see any Neosporin
Finger still is bloody, should have been cleaned up better
Already cut the hand once, and *still* hasnt locked the blade back yet
alcohol prep pads should not be used on open cuts or scrapes. The alcohol content in them is too high. Using these on open wounds could cause tissue damage and inhibit rather than aid the healing process. Their intended purpose is to clean the skin before inserting a needle or making a cut.

If you work with your hands and get cuts on a daily, this is no big deal. My most common bandaid is a paper towel wrapped in masking tape. Wait till the bleeding stops then remove it.
I do the same, and a dab of superglue to keep it from reopening, but as of late I've seen plenty of flesh-eating bacteria incidents in the news, so I'm adding Neosporin

I believe the guy used what he had on hand. The guy put the band-aid on too tight ? That's your point ? You say you have limited FA knowledge, but your ready to critique a picture?.......C'mon man.

The mentuioend criytiques seem dickish, starting a new thread (rather than just pm'ing the poster or replying in the thread) is really dickish.

Dickish indeed. However proper wound care is extremely important in a less than sanitary environment especially if you are dealing with people who may not already be in the best of health. You should know that. Unless someone is shooting at us while someone else is patching me up I would much rather have the nit picky guy patching me up.
Do you want a critical thread everytime you do something that would kill you in the PAW?
