About Us:

Our unit specializes in caring for a diverse patient population with complex issues in a designated Level 1 burn center that cares for patients from over a 600 mile radius.  We care for burn patients of all ages and can also accommodate trauma patients.

Our team has a passionate desire to return each patient back to the life they knew prior to their injuries.  The healing process for burn injuries is long and requires ongoing care and support from our team, the patient’s family, and the patient’s own drive to heal. Our goal is to follow each patient as they move from the ICU, to Stepdown, to the clinic as an outpatient, and care for them throughout this entire process of healing.  We really have to work as a team to do our best for each patient.

A few of the procedures a nurse may perform during a typical shift include IV insertion, drawing blood, in and out catheterization, hydrotherapy (wound care), assisting with chest tube, central line, and arterial line placement, using rotoprone beds, and performing CRRT (after class completion).  Like any critical care unit, we stay very busy with each case requiring a unique and customized path of treatment.

We pride ourselves on our teamwork, success with patient outcomes, extensive wound care knowledge, and our ability to follow and care for patients throughout their entire healing process.

Awards and Recognitions:
We frequently have patients return to the unit to visit the Burn Team and thank them for the care that was received and for the opportunity to continue life.
