A patient who amputated his thumb in a lawnmower accident hands the ER nurse his thumb in a glass jar. The nurse should:
1.   place the thumb in a baggie with iced Ringer’s lactate.
2.   wrap the thumb in plastic wrap and place on ice.
3.   leave the thumb in the jar and put it in the refrigerator.
4.   wrap the thumb in a cloth saturated with normal saline and place in a baggie.


This is for my medical nursing class

The amputated part should be wrapped in a normal saline solution–soaked towel, placed in a baggie, and put in a cool bath.
