Ouch!  I would keep an eye on it, any wound can get infected.

I got scratched under my nail before by a kitty that has…well, we’ll call them “issues”. Wow it hurt, so I know your pain!

It’s a tricky spot, so I was just sure to keep it clean and put a bit of ointment on. Were the staples brand new?

I’ve done something similar to that before, but not together, just have been trying to get a staple off and it jammed underneath my finger nail, and yikes that hurts.  Anytime you’ve got your skin broken you should worry about infection.  Get hydrogen peroxide as best you can under your nail or wherever the stapler went.  Hydrogen peroxide is a great great thing (well at least I think so), just get it on there in the morning and evening and you should be fine.  If there’s an area that’s not under your nail you can also point the antibioitic ointment on.
