BURN CENTRE

The burn centre of the UZ Ghent is one of the most modern burn centers in Europe. Since January 5th 2008 this has been localized in P8 of the campus, where an ultramodern department was created, where all attention is given on the comfort of the burn patient and the nursing staff. Newest technical equipment and a modern look ensure a pleasant culture within a high technological department. Under the guidance of the plastic surgeons and intensive care doctors a complete burn team consisting of nursing staff, ergotherapists, fysiotherapists, social workers, care coordinator, psychologists and pressure therapy specialists, stands ready for the burn patient to provide optimal care in all its complexity. The centre not only gives attention on the care in the burn centre itself, but also on the readjustment within the care route of the patient. Furthermore attention is given on scientific research and service, such as prevention.
