A paper cut is a life-threatening condition caused when a lethal weapon (paper) slices a person's skin and puts a patient at risk of exsanguination. Though sucking on, putting a Band-Aid, or having mommy kiss the afflicted finger are good interventions, it is best to head to the nearest emergency room or, better, hospice. As most victims will not survive a life-ending paper cut, it is best that these patients are made DNR/DNI and palliative care be involved from the get-go. In a best case scenario, a paper cut still requires amputation. As paper cuts are extremely painful, narcotics are a must for any patient.
