Returning Home After a Burn Injury

Returning home after a burn injury requires an adjustment period for both your child and your family. You will probably experience a variety of feelings and emotions that are normal. You may feel scared, nervous, or uneasy about leaving the hospital (as well as your child's appearance around friends and loved ones). Your mixed feelings are normal and it may help to have someone to talk with. Remember, there are plenty of support persons who were involved in your child's care, and they are usually available after discharge. However, your emotions can affect the physical recovery of your child. You may want to consider contacting your resources from the hospital, such as a social worker, to find out what services and support are available for you.

Listed in the directory left are some things to consider as you return home with your child following a burn injury.

If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit the Burns Online Resources page in this website for an Internet address that may contain additional information on that topic.
