Fiance got hurt at work today. :(

My fiance works as an unloader at Walmart. He was pulling a pallet of crates onto the floor (what they call the big huge stockroom in the back of the store) when it slipped and slammed against his leg. It didn't break anything, but it left a gash about two inches long and an inch wide on his leg. 

He didn't bleed real bad, so I didn't think he needed stitches. I just used some butterfly closures, a gauze pad, wrapped some gauze over it to hold the pad in place and put an Ace bandage on top to hold the gauze on. (I don't have any bandage tape, but the ace bandage had those little silver prongs to hold it in place) Oh, and I rinsed it with peroxide and put a triple antibiotic ointment of the gash before I bandaged it all up.

Idiot should have said something to his boss as soon as it happened, but instead he just hiked his sock up over it. -_-

He still needs to report out just to make sure. Although out doesn't seem too serious it is better to go through all the paperwork and have it covered under work comp than to have to fight for it later on.

Yea, I know. He JUST got the job, like, last week. So I guess he doesn't want them to think he's clumsy or not careful? -shrugs- He doesn't seem to think things out sometimes...

Quoting Sarah993:

My hubby got work (deployed though) yesterday too...well technically the day before yesterday (the first) however..his ncos and him took pictures. LOL he got his head split open by a large piece of metal. And as I'm worried about him, he's proud, because his ncos said he took.it like a champ.

Men. Lol.

But I agree with the pp's. He needs to still let them know at least. I hope he feels better. :(
