In brief: RICE

Rest, ice it, elevate it above heart level.
That's provided you've seen an orthopaedic surgeon and found out if you need a cast, splint or surgery.

In brief: Splints, occ surgery

The location and character of the fracture makes a big difference on how hand fractures are treated.
Treatment ranges from protected rom, to splints or casts, or even surgery.
