A 30-year-old chef presents to the ED with a complete fingertip amputation. She says her knife slipped while chopping vegetables. She brought the amputated pulp in a plastic bag. On examination, the patient has a clean, 5-mm-diameter dermal slice on the distal volar tip of the second digit. There is profuse nonpulsatile bleeding.

Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in management?

a. Consult hand surgery for replantation of the pulp in the operating room.
