Emergency Room – Wound Closure

March 28, 2021


If the ER doctor recommended any wound closure techniques, you received glue, tape Steri-Strips, stitches or staples. Sometimes cuts are too old to be closed safely. So make sure you get to the emergency department six hours after an injury. Sometimes animal bites need to be left open to heal. In the ER, staples are usually used in the scalp where hair makes tying sutures difficult or unsafe. They're also used after big surgeries or occasionally in other spots.
