antibiotics and ingrown toe nail surgery

My husband had inoffice surgery on his ingrown toe nail. His doctor removed one half of his big toe nail. He sent my husband home with a prescription for antiseptic cream. Is it normal to not prescribe antibiotics in such an instance? His toenail became infected despite following the post op regimen of care.
Also, should he have been given a tetnus shot if it had been more than ten years since his last one before the surgery?
