If you see a patient who has been involved in a physical altercation make sure to check their hands for signs of abrasions/lacerations as these may represent “fight bites”.  If you seen any damage to the skin you should treat the patient just as you would anyone you saw with a bite wound.  Tetanus, wound irrigation, and ABX (DOC: augmentin).
