houstondragon: Ehhh... It wasn't a life threatening emergency, though surely painful for the little girl to lose a fingertip. If the bleeding was contained, yeah, I could see transporting her to a hospital.

That said, it's not clear how far the parents were, or how long the kid had to wait for actual medical treatment. First Aid is fine and all, but not a substitute if someone may go into shock or worse. If the finger was crushed enough for that, there could have been worse damage inside the finger itself.

Basically, the school farked up a bit. They carry insurance on their students for exactly that sort of incident; I'm sure the admin thought they'd save a couple of bucks by skipping the ambulance, which will probably cost them a lot more just in bad publicity.


You have four hours, from the point the finger is detached, to get that child to a micro-vascular surgeon capable of performing re-implantation surgery. The loss of a finger, or part of a digit, is a time-critical emergency from which delaying can result in substantial life-long disability and cost to that child and his/her parents in rehabilitation and lost ability to perform a job later in life. This is a situation which would have been ideal for EMS intervention.

In reality, this child, barring a hospital being overloaded with critical patients, would be taken back immediately, and either assessed by surgery, or shipped by ground or air to a facility which has a microvascular team, if the digit was still viable.

So yeah. This was an emergency, just as much so as a guy in shock would be. First Aid doesn't qualify you to make a decision on whether or not the finger was viable, and every rational first aid instructor would tell you to call 911 in that instance.

White kids get EMS.  Black kids get a "not my farking problem" from the principal.  Hell if it were my kid I wouldnt even mind them not calling EMS if they would have just taken my kid directly to the hospital with the finger for treatment.

/ok now imagine she's white.  Now did the school do something wrong? no?  Ok imagine you actually have a shred of decency, lets work from there.

First of all, the Debbie Downer part from the article:   "In a prepared statement, Dickinson I.S.D. confirms Amazing lost the tip of her finger and that her parents were called to take her to the hospital. Had they not been able to reach Amazing's parents or if it were a life-threatening incident, 911 would have been called."

It doesn't sound like the nurse made a medical decision, she just followed standard procedures for a non-life threatening medical condition.

It is not clear how much time elapsed between the child's injury and when her parents got her to the hospital.  Sure, calling 911 would have gotten the child there faster, but it is not immediately obvious that the delay resulted in a worse outcome.

The article is not clear on how much of the fingertip was avulsed.  If it was a chunk of skin and subcutaneous tissue without exposed bone, then the "reattachment" was likely not a revascularization - the soft tissue is sewn on to cover the wound bed, and serves as a biological band-aid to cover the site as the tip regenerates.  If the amputated part included anything more than a sliver of the tuft of the distal phalanx, then the school should have called 911 for immediate transport to the hostpial.

Enemabag Jones: Attaching fingertips really isn't that big of a deal, assuming the body part is kept on ice and it is attended to quickly.

Latesha Coleman arrived at the hospital where Amazing had been taken by her father to find him holding a bag, "and he had the tip of her pinky in the bag."

I really hope there was some ice in that bag.


DO NOT PUT THE AMPUTATED PART DIRECTLY ON ICE!  FREEZING THE PART MAY KILL IT!

Ideally, you should use a wad of gauze moistened with normal saline to make a bulky wrapping, put that in a sealed plastic bag, and then put the bag o' finger in another plastic bag that contains ice and saline to keep it cool.  The part is not receiving oxygen and nutrition because it no longer receives blood.  Chilling the part slows down the metabolic activity of its cells, so they will remain viable longer.

In a non-ideal situation, e.g. cutting off a finger with the saw in your garage, first yell for your wife or kids to call 911 right the hell away.  If you are alone, call 911 yourself immediately.  Do not stop to do anything else, in case you get lightheaded and pass out, delaying your treatment.  If you can still keep your shiat together, stick a rag, paper towel, whatever on the digit and manually squeeze it to slow the bleeding.  DO NOT APPLY A RUBBER BAND OR ANY OTHER TOURNIQUET.  EMS will determine if that is appropriate, and you should let the professional first responders do it.

If you can find the amputated part, you will need to preserve it.  Moisten a small cloth towel, or a wad of paper towels.  The wrapping doesn't have to sterile, but it shouldn't be filthy.  Saturate the wrapping, and loosely squeeze it once so that it is sopping wet. Water is not ideal, but allowing the part to desiccate is worse than exposing it to hypotonic solution. Wrap the finger in the moistened cloth/rag/whatever.  Put the wad o' finger in a Ziploc bag and seal the bag.  Wrap the finger in the moistened cloth/rag/whatever.   Put that bag in a larger Ziploc bag or any other sealed container (you will not get the container back from the hospital, btw) that contains some ice and water.  TELL THE EMS CREW THE BAG/CONTAINER HAS THE FINGER IN IT.

Get your ass to a hospital that has microvascular surgeons that do this kind of thing frequently.  Get there as soon as possible.  If you live in the boonies, you may get a helicopter ride to the big city's level 1 trauma center.

Per a call from the administrators: Coleman was told the "nurse was working with Amazing, that Amazing was fine...She's being loved on by the nurse."

First why are the administrators calling the parents and not the nurse.  I can see the nurse calling and saying "X happened, do you want an ambulance called, or do you want to drive her down to the ER yourselves.  It is not life threatening and should be attached asap".

I think school administrators are professional ass-coverers.

"Wow, tons of good info here! One quick question, how much does it take for a little girl to go into shock? Could this have been life threatening



People tend to be confused about 'shock'. The 'shock' you are describing is an acute psychological condition due to trauma, It is not a medical problem. Now there are four types of medical 'shock' that are all life threatening, it can not be caused by the reaction to an injury.

Hypovolemic shock: When you lose significant volume of blood or are severely dehydrated, you may not have enough blood perfusion to get oxygen to the needed vital organs.

Anaphylatic shock: Due to massive histamine release in an allergic reaction, the body goes into full protective mode and shunts blood to the core. Histamine also causes the blood vessels to leak into the extravascular space. You can lose blood pressure, and not adaquately perfuse the vital organs.

Neurogenic Shock: Due to a head injury, your brain is not regulating your blood pressure properly, and you lose perfusion to the vital organs.

Cardiogenic shock: Due to heart pumping failure you are not perfusing the vital organs.

All shock conditions can be fatal; however, this is never caused by a partial or full amputation of a finger.

Going into 'shock' after an injury that is not life-threatening, it not a life threatening condition unless you happen to walk into traffic or jump off a building due to dissociative fugue.

Also, amputation of a distal tip of the extremity is not in need of 911. Even if it is an open fracture (bone exposed) 911 should be optional if someone with some medical training is available to stabilize the injury and transportation is available to a hospital. Overuse of 911 is one of the numerous reasons that our medical system is going broke.

Re: this little girl's name, different ethnic and religious groups in American society have different naming conventions.

For example, in my ethnic background children were traditionally named after deceased relatives. This leads to a somewhat restricted palette from which to choose (for example, my father's patrilineal ancestry alternated between "David" and "Max" for five generations) but that doesn't imply that we're being ridiculous about names.

Whereas in other groups in American society, including but far from limited to African-American communities, kids' names are often chosen for uniqueness or relation to something important in the parents' lives (e.g., Unique, Nevaeh, Aquanetta). Okay, so you think that's a silly naming convention? You have that right. Just don't be surprised if people are taken aback when you mock groups of people based on this. Personally, I think names like Todd or Anthony or Bruce are a bit strange, to say nothing of Mitt or Johns or Trig, but you won't hear me calling out Anglo folks for giving their kids silly names.

Molavian: hardinparamedic: Satanic_Hamster: You don't have to call an ambulance for everything, subby.  For minor things, it's quicker and easier to just drive them to a clinic or the hospital yourself.  Ambulances aren't taxi services.  shiat, I've driven a guy to the hospital who had just cut off of one finger.

Depending on where you're at, a severed finger will get you a helicopter ride, Satanic.

Tip.  Fingertip.  I bet it didn't even hit nail bed, let alone bone.


If you've ever seen someone crush a finger in a door before, it's not exactly a nice clean surgical cut.

We're not talking about someone playing with a power tool or sharp knife, a little kid crushed her finger enough to clip off the tip. That tends to have other problems involved (like losing the nail, if it was still there)

Again, my reaction (and I am First Aid/CPR trained) would be to control the bleeding, and get the kid some damn help. Imagine if you're at work, and someone called you.

How long does it take to get there? Do you know where the nearest hospital would be? What time of day and traffic are you looking at? If the kid has the sniffles, sure, they can wait. Body parts get removed, you really should be calling professionals.

I'm going to disagree with you on the bolded part. Improper use of the 911 resources in a city, as well as a failure of the EMS profession in the United States to adopt greater educational standards and enter into the preventive and community healthcare aspects of healthcare (See Fort Worth for how effective this can be) is one of the reasons we're going broke in the United States.

When I was 5, I almost severed the entire first joint of my pink finger doing some really poorly planned arts and crafts at kindergarten. Did they panic the fark out and call 911? No. They got applied first aid, got the nurse to stabilize it a bit, and had my parents come pick me up to get me to a doctor. was fine, although I have a bit of a frankenstein pinky now. Calling an ambulance just because a kid loses a bit of skin off the very tip of a finger, not even anywhere near the bone or joint, would be wildly irresponsible.

her parents were called to take her to the hospital. Had they not been able to reach Amazing's parents or if it were a life-threatening incident, 911 would have been called

OK then.

It's been like 6 years since I last worked as an EMD and let my certification lapse, but I believe a severed finger was an alpha response (lowest priority that required an ambulance reponse) according to the Priority Dispatch EMD Protocols.  It simply isn't an emergency that requires 911.  It requires someone to drive the person to the ER.  I didn't RTFA, but it seems the appropriate response is to call the kid's guardian and ask them what course of action they'd like to take.

bullshiat. the tip of my thumb never grew back AND some of the reattached skin didn't take and fell off. also the fingernail split in a crush injury is still split and that was 5 years ago. it has however almost grown to where it's all attached to the nail bed.

given my experience i'd say the chance of her keeping what was reattached is less that 25%. unless they did some really nice micro surgery which i doubt for a black 6 y/o girl.

When i was little I was shipped off to summer camp for two weeks. One fine morning I walked to the food hall for breakfast and ended up sitting on a wasp which stung me at least twice on my thigh. I walked over to the nurse as she sat down for breakfast to tell her I had been stung. As you can imagine I was in pain and scared. She told me to wait until after breakfast. For all she knew- I could have been allergic to the venom. I could have died. She had no idea who I was and therefore no knowledge of my medical history. But she told me to wait until she finished her farking breakfast. Meanwhile my upper leg swelled at least twice its size.

White vs black is so last century. Now that poor and poor-looking whites get pissed on just as much as poor blacks, and rich blacks can buy their way into the establishment too, class warfare has replaced race wars. Some poor old hillbillies are still living in the past, but the country's moved on to other ways of dividing and oppressing each other.

Satanic_Hamster: You don't have to call an ambulance for everything, subby.  For minor things, it's quicker and easier to just drive them to a clinic or the hospital yourself.  Ambulances aren't taxi services.  shiat, I've driven a guy to the hospital who had just cut off of one finger.


Depending on where you're at, a severed finger will get you a helicopter ride, Satanic.

orclover: White kids get EMS.  Black kids get a "not my farking problem" from the principal.  Hell if it were my kid I wouldnt even mind them not calling EMS if they would have just taken my kid directly to the hospital with the finger for treatment.


So now the black kid is getting his finger sewn back on, AND a substantial settlement from the school system.

I don't think they thought their cunning plan all the way through.

Amazingness aside....If a 6-year old's having a piece of her finger cut off is not an emergency warranting a 911 call, one wonders what would be. Does the nurse subscribe to the Black Knight theory of limb amputation? "Tis but a scratch!"

This is good news. It means schools are learning to abandon zero tolerance rules.

Well. That was stupid. The person who made the decision not to call 911 for that is an amazing johnson him/herself.
