Our Goal in Burn Care
We provide comprehensive medical care for adults and children who have experienced a burn injury, including those individuals requiring complicated wound management. Some of the most complex wounds we treat include Necrotizing fasciitis, Stevens Johnson Syndrome, Calciphylaxis and Hidradenitis.
Complete Burn Care
Grady's Burn Center provides complete care to burn victims of all ages whether their burns result from flames, scalds, chemical or electrical accidents, and includes those requiring complicated wound management. Patients suffering from traumatic burns are cared for in the center's Intensive Care Unit until stable. Beyond critical care, the Burn Center offers outpatient services for minor burns and follow-up care for major burns. Our Burn Center includes:
Grady's Burn Center is verified by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma as an adult and pediatric burn center - the "Gold Standard" for high-quality burn care. Grady is also verified by the State of Georgia Department of Public Health.
The Burn Team
The Burn Center is staffed by a highly qualified team of Emory University School of Medicine surgeons and Grady nurses certified in critical burn and advanced wound care for adults and children. It is because of our exceptional team of doctors and staff that patients from all over the country choose to receive their treatment here.
Grady Burn Center's multidisciplinary team includes:
Family Reaction and Role
The Burn Center staff understands this is a stressful time for family and close friends of patients and encourages them to ask questions. Family and visitors are also encouraged to take care of themselves by getting adequate rest and nutrition and leaving the hospital when possible. If there is any doubt whether someone should stay at the hospital, please consult the medical or nursing staff.
Patient Condition Report
To inquire about a patient's condition, immediate family members may call the Burn Center using the patient information card provided by the admitting nurse 24 hours a day, and speak to the nurse caring for the patient. These family members should identify themselves and give the patient's name and ID card number. Condition reports are given only to immediate family members. The staff prefers that one or two family members be designated to inquire about a patient's condition. These family members can then relay the information to others. Friends must contact the family for information about a patient's condition.
Visits from family and loved ones are important and help promote healing for both patients and their families. That is why the Grady Burn Center offers open visitation for family and friends. Because treatment of a burn patient can be complex, special visitation guidelines may be specified by caregivers to assist in providing our patients with the best possible care. In our spacious Patient and Family Lounge, families and loved ones can relax while patients receive their care. Resources and amenities available for family and patients include:
Visitors must wash their hands upon entering the Burn Center and when leaving a patient's room. Children and adults visiting the Burn Center must be free of active colds, infections, or diseases. Immunizations must also be up-to-date.
When holding children or having physical contact with patients, visitors should wear gown and gloves provided by the nursing staff to protect patients from bacteria. Also, items from one patient's room cannot be taken to another patient's room.
Food cannot be stored in the patient's room, but can be stored in a refrigerator in the unit's nourishment area. Fresh flowers and live plants are not permitted in the patient's room.
