We know you're working hard to provide the highest level of care for
your patients, and with nearly 50 years of experience in treating burn
patients, we’re here to offer support services to you and your staff.
Our Regional Burn Center’s comprehensive burn care program includes
an acute adult unit, an acute pediatric unit and an outpatient burn clinic
for both children and adults. Led by experienced burn surgeons, our interdisciplinary
care teams are made up of highly trained specialty nurses, dietitians,
respiratory therapists, rehabilitation therapists and social workers.
We know your community looks to you to provide emergency burn care, and
you're a vital part of our healthcare network. You are often the first
point of contact for your community and we want to help ensure your team
is well-versed in the latest procedures in burn stabilization and treatment.
Please post this
Emergency Burn Care Poster in your ER and encourage your staff to become familiar with these treatment
guidelines. If you would like a complimentary, full-size poster, we're
happy to send you one.
While burns are probably not your most common cases, they often require
specialized treatment. If you are interested in having our burn care team
visit your facility to conduct on-site training for your staff regarding
stabilization for all types of burn injuries, please email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call (225) 387-7717. We are committed to providing the best burn care
for our community and yours. If there is anything we can do to help you
and your staff better serve your patients, please don't hesitate to
Transferring and Referring Patients to the Burn Unit
When you have a patient who requires treatment in Baton Rouge General's
Inpatient or Outpatient Burn Center, please call us at (225) 387-7717.
We will review the case over the phone and help you properly assess your
patient's case to determine whether your patient would be best served
through inpatient or outpatient.
For the safety and convenience of your patients, you must confirm referral
acceptance by phone with us before transferring any burn patients (inpatient
or outpatient). If we recommend your patient be treated through our Outpatient
Burn Clinic, we will ask you to fill out an outpatient referral instruction sheet.
