Deep Cut

Patient: My dad cut open his hand this morning and it’s a really deep gash. The problem is that he does not have health insurance and might need stitches. So I cleaned the wound with hydrogen peroxide, closed it with butterfly bandages, liquid bandage, gauze, and wrap. Should this be enough to cut down the chances of infection?
