 Injured musk turtle

My female mush turtle had a small piece of her shell broken by a male trying to mate. Payday is a week away, and I’m trying to find the best treatment until I can get her to the vet. I googled the injury and found a vet website that recommended quarantine, scrub entire shell with povidine iodine, put neosporin ointment on it, let her dry for an hour, and place her in about 2 inches of water, which I have done, but wanted to know your thoughts/opinions... Shell damage is about 1/4 inch long, and about 1/8 inch wide. She had a small pinprick size of blood, which has stopped.
