Patient :I got my fingernail smashed in door. Two days later I went to the emergency room to get it checked out because the pain from the buildup of blood was painful. They made sure my finger wasnt broken and then drilled a hole in my nail to drain blood. That was two days ago and my nail still has blood coming out of it. I keep it covered so blood won't get on anything and lower risk of infection. Is the bleeding normal? If so, how much longer will it bleed?
