How do I convince them to let me get back to work?

I learned my lesson. Dont let the nurses know you burned yourself.
(Im food services work in a hospital)

Lid on the kettle came off and the boiling water spilled on my hand.
Second worst burn I've given myself (first was with a fry basket from a deep fryer)

I ran it under cold water but we were on a really short time limit so i only gave it a couple minutes. I've never done the whole 20. Seems excessive and you just dont have time.

But my hand was really stinging when i went back to doing my thing so i asked a nurse for a cold pak and instead the took me to urgent care. So now im stuck here with my hand in a sink.

Its really important for the girl im working with to have a helper though or stuff won't get done on time! So i need to get back to work but they won't let me.

What can i do? Or am i stuck here?
