Here is a tip worth remembering- if you happen to get a nasty cut that will require stitches but you don't have access to a doctor or hospital- you can make your own emergency stitches . . .
Crack a fresh egg, dump out the egg, near the crack carefully grasp a piece of the membrane. Gently pull off the membrane and apply it directly to the cut requiring stitches. It will dry quickly and seal the cut shut, preventing anything nasty from entering it. Be sure that you've washed out the cut the best you can before applying the membrane and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
I once witnessed a cook cut his finger while preparing for the dinner rush, apply an egg membrane (& a glove) and finish his shift before he went to the hospital where he received 9 stitches for the gash.
**Update** Applied this to trick to a Wart that got ripped off a child's knee while he was playing and it just wouldn't stop bleeding everywhere, Worked like a charm!**
