Treating chemical burns from meth explosions
- 0Feb 20, '13 by LeahAlbertJust curious of how other county jails are treating chemical burns related to meth production/explosions. Aside from basic nursing care (antibiotics and dressing changes with silvadene for 1st and 2nd degree) are there other protocols in place, such as lab work or routine vs? I am finding these are highly exudating and slow healing wounds.
Not to mention, if the inmate is also diabetic or older. Seems these inmates may need more close monitoring?
