  • I would think it'd be okay. Call the nurse at the hospital and see what they say. You're supposed to change the dressing on a wound every so often anyway.

  • I would make sure they're still covered for another day, but not necessarily with all that bandaging.

  • Make sure he doesn't get it wet and it may have been that tight due to swelling. It should be ok to put a lighter bandage on. Just make sure he elevates the hand to keep the swelling down.
