Breaking Shabbat For Injuries Caused by a Metal Object

The Daily Halacha Moment - Breaking Shabbat For Injuries Caused by a Metal Object

🔪

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)


“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

May one break Shabbat to treat an injury caused by a metal object?


Answer:

One who is wounded through a metal object, such as a knife, may be treated on Shabbat and may even put cream on the wound in order to avoid infection.[1] Similarly, it is permitted to violate Shabbat for any wound that a doctor deems can be a life-threatening wound, such as if it is possible that the wound can cause an infection.[2]

See also Yalkut Yosef, Shabbat, vol. 4, p. 223 who states that not every small cut from a knife or metal permits one to violate Shabbat in order to treat it. One may only violate Shabbat in order to treat a cut that can be deemed at least a doubtful danger. See also Ashrei HaIsh, vol. 2, 36:33.
