Most important clinical skills for Peds Burn

  1. 0 I'm currently a Senior Nursing student. I'm going to have my clinical nursing rotation at a Burn Unit. I'm just wondering what the utmost important clinical skills that I have to put in serious considerations when taking care of Burn kids?

    I truly appreciate your inputs!

    Thank you

    There are so many it's difficult to narrow it down. I think the #1 thing would be infection control since that's a killer for kids with big burns. (I'm assuming the airway is secure) Pain assessment and maintaining hydration are right up there for priorities as well.

    Good luck. I'm sure you'll learn tons!
