Burns

Staffed by a highly skilled team of physicians, therapists, and psychologists, Good Shepherd's comprehensive Burn Care Program is designed to ease your transition from an acute-care burn unit to a rehabilitation setting. All disciplines work closely together to help maximize your functional independence and facilitate your return to home and the community.

Levels of care:

Due to smoke inhalation injuries, you may need respiratory or breathing treatments. In addition, your speech and swallowing may be impaired and you may require speech and language therapy to regain these abilities.

  • Adaptations and training for daily living and everyday tasks
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Community reintegration through therapeutic recreation and community outings
  • Emotional support and counseling
  • Family education and conferences
  • Hand therapy

  • Infection control (IV antibiotics)
  • Mobility training, including ambulation and functional transfers
