In brief: Buddy tape
I would buddy tape middle finger to ring finger a few daya after the finger is reduced back in place to allow early motion and at the same time stabilize finger amd prevent another dislocation

In brief: Needs reduction
A dislocation needs to be reduced and the bones put back into place before taping - normally after reduction we will tape 2-3 fingers together as "buddy taping" which forms an effective splint.
