When Kim Kardashian suffered a foot laceration from a piece of broken glass, dialing 911 may have been excessive, even if she was expected to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

If you suffer anything other than a superficial cut, see a doctor.  A culture and sensitivity test may be ordered, perhaps an anti-biotic dispensed.  Sometimes a tetanus injection is necessary.  Some lacerations require sutures.  If a foreign body is embedded in your foot, do not try to remove it alone, as you could make the condition worse.  Seek medical attention right away.
