Military procedures help needed, please?

Hi, first time poster, and I'm so glad I found this site since I know absolutely nothing about the military. :) I have a couple of questions, please:

1) Is it customary to receive hard copies of intel/reports during a military briefing or is it all digital these days?

2) On a base, a soldier's injured their hand, noncombat, and the injury requires icing. Is that something they can handle themselves and how? Or is there a procedure they follow, need to go somewhere for it, i.e., get a chemical coldpack/ice, see a doctor.

Thank you for any and all help, greatly appreciated! :)
