Unfortunately it is not possible to identify a pill online without an imprint. All Rx and OTC drugs in the US are required by the FDA to have an imprint, it is what enables us to identify them.
Did they check whether your tetanus vaccination was up to date - I would have thought they would for a rusty nail puncture, otherwise there is nothing wrong with soap and water for keeping it clean.
Watch the wound, if it swells up (becomes red and inflamed) you should go back to your doctor and he may give antibiotics then.
Here is a helpful link to wound care.
