Care for Soft Tissue Diseases
The Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center cares for patients recovering from a recent episode of major skin loss or injury syndromes that resemble burns.
These may include:
Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) – life-threatening skin disorders that are usually induced by a drug reaction.
Scalded skin syndrome — infection in which the skin becomes
damaged and sheds.
Bullous pemphigus — blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes.
Calciphylaxis — vascular calcification and skin necrosis.
Necrotizing fasciitis — also known as “flesh-eating disease”; a soft tissue infection of muscles, skin and connective tissue.
Purpura Fulminans – a disease associated with severe bloodstream infection, often causing gangrene of portions of the extremities.
Major road abrasions from auto, motorcycle or bicycle accidents.
The Burn Wound Care Center provides outpatient burn wound management, including daily wound care, physical therapy and patient education to prevent unnecessary admissions to the Burn Treatment Center and foster shorter hospitalizations.
