Assault including a stabbing or shooting or an assault using another weapon
Deep cuts that require sutures – especially on the face
Cuts with exposed tissue or where the feeling or temperature of the part is not normal
Lacerations - if the bleeding cannot be controlled or is from any body orifice or is longer than 20mm or if there is white or yellow substances visible in the wound; this is highly suggestive of referral directly to an Emergency Department.
