1. Chapter 24 Case 1
Physician office note
The patient's wife brought the patient to my office after the patient tried to separate a raccoon and their dog, which were fighting. While trying to separate the animals, the patient was bitten. He is not sure whether the raccoon or the dog bit him.
The patient's left forearm has bite marks on it. The wound is bleeding and is deep, and there is tendon involvement.
The nurse cleaned the wound, and a Tetanus shot was given. Because the wound is deep and there is tendon involvement, I called Dr. Black for a surgical consult. The wound was dressed to control the bleeding.
