    Stop going to the hospital for stupid ****. Your an over exaggerator. Its a papel cut not a serious injury. Expect to get a huge bill. They probably wont even look at you. The hospital is a place for emergencies only.

    An overworked triage nurse will possibly apply a plaster, and will lecture you about being a time-waster. And will then tell you to leave the casualty unit but to seek medical attention from your own family doctor if that superficial cut becomes infected.

    Unless the staff are all sitting around bored-stiff with no other patients and no administrative work to catch up on, then you won’t get past the triage nurse to see anyone else.

    Even a specialist minor injury unit would treat you the same way. If the cut is still stinging then take aspirin or paracetamol (or both) to dull the pain. You could instead replace the aspirin with ibuprofen, but as it’s chemically similar to aspirin you should never take aspirin and ibuprofen together.

    You should expect to wait several hours as your cut is extremely minor. It will probably stop bleeding before you see a doctor.

    A 4 to 6 hour wait , a lot of nurses laughing at you , and a triage nurse that calls you a bloody idiot , and a doctor that stares at you blankly and says are you for real , then another 4 to 6 hour wait for the mental health team to come and reveiw you coz you clearly are barking mad
