    I would take her to be seen.

    Firstly they can give her appropriate pain relief..they will also X-ray it to determine if it broken and will provide a splint and arm sling...

    I just rang the hospital and they said as she's not crying to give her nurofen and take her to a gp tomorrow. The nurse confirmed there is not much they can do for broken little finger other than tape them to the finger next to it.

    Definitely take her to get it looked at - down the track it may be beneficial to have the break recorded on her medical history.
    The hospital might also be give better pain relief to get her through the night. (Not a nurse, just speculating).

    I was just going to say the same thing. There is no use clogging up the emergency department just so they could do the same thing you could do at home.

    I hope that the nurofen eases it for her until she sees the GP tomorrow
