REYES RECIO, A.J.; RAMIREZ GONZALEZ, P.  and  STAGNARO, M.A.. Descriptive study about wounds because of work accident. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

Bearing in mind the number of wounds to workers affiliated to Mutual Universal in the whole national territory, we have that 8 % of simple wounds and 4.4 % of complex wounds were attended to in the welfare centers of Mutual Universal in the province of Las Palmas. In a previous analysis performed at the centers taking part in the study, it was determined that the scrappy wounds were the most frequent, so we focus our study on this type of wounds. From September, 2006 to September, 2007, there was gathered a whole of 289 cases that fulfilled the criteria of incorporation. Knowledge of the characteristics of this type of injuries, always related to the labour activity, will allow us to increase the quality of the sanitary assistance given and to have firsthand knowledge of the average durations of Temporary Invalidity for the suitable and ideal reincorporation of the worker in the work place. The study that we have carried out has as its principal aim to describe the characteristics of the scrappy wounds for accidents at work of the users who come to the centers of primary assistance of Mutual Universal in the Province of Las Palmas.
