    Hola ¿ me pueden ayudar a traducir lavado quirúrgico? El contexto es el siguiente: Una persona se aplasta los dedos y después de la revisión y lavado lo trasladan al hospital.

    La frase exacta es:
    Después del lavado quirúrgico se empaquetó y se trasladó al hospital regional. Yo creo es:
    After the surgical washing , it was packed and taken to the regional hospital.

    Gracias!

    To prepare for surgery, the surgeon "scrubs" using aseptic technique. We call it "scrubbing in" for surgery. I suppose it's rather informal. For your translation, I think you could say "After aseptic washing, the hand was packed and the patient was taken to the hospital.
