Stitching And Bandaging

Stitching and bandaging is used to treat already stabilized patients or wounds that are not life threatening. At this stage it is important to properly clean and dress the wound so it does not become infected. Infected wound will cause a fever and will cost resources (in downtime) to heal. There is about a 1 in 5 chance a wound becomes infected.

This is done with a set of condition cards available at check in. Each time the skill is used, give the top two cards to the patient. Nine out of every ten cards will be blanc, the others will be an Infected Wound condition.
