Burn ICU - 12 bed unit
Ascension Columbia-St.Mary’s Regional Burn Center is one of two burn centers in the state of Wisconsin. The Center consists of both a 12 bed Acuity Adaptable ICU for Adult inpatients and an Outpatient Burn Clinic, which treats both adults and children. Our patient population comes from the eastern half of Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and Upper Illinois. The patient population consists of patients with burns from flame, scalds,grease,chemical, electrical and frostbite. We also treat skin sloughing disorders i.e. TENS, SJS. and large wounds,such as necrotizing
fasciitis,and Fournier's gangrene. We also care for other Medical and Surgical ICU overflow patients. Some of the Burn nurses also float down to the Outpatient Burn Clinic and share their expertise in that setting. We welcome enthusiastic applicants who are willing to learn in a growing tertiary care environment and have a passion for caring for our very vulnerable patient population.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality of care. We have daily shift huddles. We depend on our team to support the quality of care our patients deserve.
