Two patients are brought to the emergency room. One has cut his finger with a knife; the other has stepped on a nail. Which wound has a greater chance of becoming infected? Why?
A patient who cut his finger has greater chances to be infected because bacteria have an access to liquid circulating through the whole body. Being in touch with a blood, they have a chance of very quick transfer to a number of organs.
