burn unit

  1. 0
    I used to float to the adult burn unit at a toledo hospital in the late 80s and early 90s. I worked on a BMT unit. I am interveiwing tomarrow for peds burn. Does anyone have any tips or decent questions I need to ask? I have been a nurse for 16 years and when I rotated they always gave me the easy burn patients......

    any thoughts are appreciated.

    I moved it out of the CRNA forum, good luck on your interview.

    I think they will be happy to have someone with any experience.

    The biggest question I would think is what % burn you are going to administer care to. That has more impact on care than any other consideration.

    The second really big question I would ask is what "bugs" they are growing and their virulence and if there are any documented cases of workers getting sick or carrying them home to the family.

    If you are going to the ICU, a really good orientation the to pathophysiology is a must. Burns are a different animal.

    Alley cat thanks for asking! I ended up taking a position as a case manager. No nights, weekends, holidays or oncall so I am very happy. For the first time in 16 years I do not have to carry a pager all night...........
