(Journal of Burn Care & Rehabilitation, May/June 1992).
Extremely painful and debilitating, serious burn injuries can require specialized treatment in a burn unit and multiple surgeries, including skin graft and plastic surgery. Even with the best of care, burn injury victims can be left with physical and emotional scars that last a lifetime.
