In brief: Exam + X-rays.

That's pretty much it.
But make sure you follow up with an orthopedist, because it may need splinting initially, and there can be improper healing, affecting hand function that needs to then be either prevented or treated.

In brief: Exam, xray

Exam looks at motion, alignment.
Swelling, stiffness, sensation, lack of laceration and an xray is ordered based upon suspicions.

In brief: Exam and X ray

A complete patient and trauma history, a thorough physical examination, and dedicated x ray films of the affected digit can confirm the diagnosis of a finger fracture.
Typically, these injuries present with acute pain and swelling, and local brusing (ecchymosis). One should seek medical evaluation if a fracture is suspected.
