can you wash hair with staples in it?

pt cow kicked by horse 2 days ago.  ER told her not to bath for 24 hrs. its been 48.  she would really like to bath and wash all the dried blood out of her hair.  and I'm thinking the hot shower would help clear up her stuffy nose from being broken.

It should be fine to just put her head in for a few sec. at a time. She doesn't want to keep her head wet for very long. I had a bad car wreck and I did it and dried the area off real well and it was fine.
