Broken Finger :
Immobilize the Finger
- Tape the broken finger to an adjacent non-broken finger.
- Cool the finger by applying ice that is wrapped in a towel — don’t apply ice directly to the skin; it can cause a burn.
Call a healthcare provider or go to a hospital emergency room immediately so the broken finger can be X-rayed and properly set. Without treatment, it may not heal properly and could lead to a permanent deformity.
