My daughter scraped her elbow on our walkway. Anything to do besides soap and water (bleeding stopped quickly but it hurt pretty badly)?

In brief: Check tetanus status

I would review her tetanus vaccine status and make sure that was up to date.
Any break in the skin has the potential to allow tetanus to set up.
