Inpatient Care

Patients are often referred to our center because they meet the American Burn Association’s referral criteria and need specialized burn care that only a verified burn center can provide. Baton Rouge General provides the most comprehensive and expert care for burn patients in our region.

Depending on the type and severity of the burn injury, some patients may need to spend an extended amount of time in our Burn Center. BRG’s Burn Center offers a multi-disciplinary team of experts caring for patients recovering from injury. Services include critical care, surgery, wound care, therapy, emotional support, and nutritional care.
