The Role of A Nurse In The Treatment of Burns
Theoretical starting points: Burns are such an underappreciated injury that can happen to anyone at anytime and anywhere. They are among the common injuries although their frequency has been declining in recent year. They can have serious consequences, which leads to a whorse quality of life. In such a patient, a very important role represents a nurse.
Method: In the theoretical part was used a descriptive method of work, and for the research we used a qualitative method of work with a questionnaire, conducted among nurses from two different units, whose knowledge of burns we compared.
Results: The results showed that the theoretical and practical knowledge of nurses in the area of burns is quite good. We found out that the knowledge of the nurses from UKC MB unit is better. All respondents had already had contact with burns and are well aware of the care, the treatment and first aid for burns.
Discussion: The collected information tells us that nurses, despite the under offered education, still have enough theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of burn injuries, as most acquired it in a practical environment.
