I fell outside on my hands and knees. My knees got bruised up, but my hand got scraped with gravel. Soap and water?

In brief: Yes
Soap and water is appropriate - if any laceration and is deep with bleeding not controlled you may need sutures.
Monitor for signs of infection such as increasing redness, pain or drainage - if signs, seek care from a medical provider.
