BURN INJURY TREATMENT



Hospitalization for Burn Injury Treatment

Hospitalization is required for severe burns. In some cases, patients with a second-degree burn may require medical treatment in a hospital. For optimal treatment and outcome, patients with third and fourth degree burns will be admitted into a specialized burn center. The hospitalization treatment process for burn injuries will depend on the severity of the burn, including how much of the patient’s total body surface area (TBSA) is affected.
