Hi Recently started working as charge in a brand new burn ICU. We have not yet developed standards of care when it comes to anything like burn precautions, debridement and dressing/changes wound care, etc. And there are very few of us with any burn experience. At this point we are learning day to day based on the docs orders. When we get a big burn, they go to the tank room and after that we mostly follow MD orders. Our orders for wound care are however NEVER clear and change all the time, if we have a specific order at all. I am looking to help develop a standard of care hand in hand with docs hopefully to help standardize this as much as can possibly be done. Do any of you have copies of your unit's standards of care that we could potentially use as a starting point? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
if anyone has any examples!
