    No it’s an avulsion, meaning a missing piece, you can’t pull the edges together....no stitches

    No

    Its a surface cut, at best you peeled the first layer of skin! It's not overly long or deep enough to warrant stitches.

    I get cuts like that ALL the time at work, some even bigger that that, none require waiting hours in emerge to get 1-2 stitches.

    What you need to do is clean the wound out with soap/water, then put a bandaid on it. The cut itself, should heal within a week.

    Put a bandaid on it. Maybe a little Neosporin. You don't need stitches.

    stitches are generally only necessary when youre unable to close the wound and stop the bleeding. Clearly no stitches are needed.
