Particularly during the winter months, Bayalpata Hospital run by Possible Health sees a large number of patients with burn injuries. In one week alone, five children were in the Inpatient Department (IPD), receiving daily dressing changes and medications to treat their burns.
Most of these injuries will heal with time and proper dressings, but some require further treatment, such as skin grafting. More severe burns, however, may develop contracture as they heal, and may eventually require surgical repair to restore functionality.
