Women's & Children's Hospital Burns Beds

The Julian Burton Burns Trust funded the purchase of 2 specialised beds for the Womens and Children's Hospital Burns Service as a result of a grant from Clubs SA. Burns oatients require specialised beds that conduct airflow to avoid pressure sores and to allow airflow to the wound. These beds will therefore aid in the rehabiliation of paediatric burns patients.

Thank you to Clubs SA for their support.

FIRST AID QUICK GUIDE
In an emergency call 000
1. REMOVE
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the affected area to allow effective cooling of the burn.
2. COOL
Cool the burn under cool running water for 20 minutes - this will stop the burning process and also help ease the pain.
3. COVER
Cover the burn with a clean lint free cloth or if it is a large area, cover loosely with cling wrap to lessen the chance of infection.
4. SEEK
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece or on the face, hands, feet or groin area.
