Health and Safety

Statistics show that the majority of accidents occur in the home. On Sunday morning I was washing up. I had bare feet, and was wearing my silk dressing gown with the wide sleeves. My sleeve caught a china mug and whisked it onto the floor, where it smashed. I turned round to pick up the bits and got a fragment of china in the sole of my foot.
I can’t get it out, Dave can’t get it out, the GP practice nurse can’t get it out. She has slapped on some magnesium sulphate and a plaster in the hopes of drawing it out. If the chip is still in there tomorrow, I have to go to A&E.
There has to be a health and safety learning point here…I know - Don’t wash up.
