It sounds like the school definitely did not provide the care that hopefully you could expect from the health department, especially if a nurse was on duty. However, in order to take action against them legally, you will have to prove that due to their negligence in not taking action earlier, your daughter's wound became worse or that your daughter suffered legally compensable damages. This may be difficult to prove because in situation like this, chances are your daughter would have required stitches regardless and as long as her injury was discovered in enough time for her to receive stitches, there may not be a lot that can be done.
