What patients and families need to know
Resources for Families
At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. In addition to any resources your provider may give you, our online resources can also support your ongoing treatment journey.
If you have questions for our Burn Team, email us at email@example.com. You can also reach us on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at 202-476-5221; and on evenings, weekends and holidays call 202-476-5000 and ask for the pediatric surgical resident on-call.
We have compiled a list of guidelines to prevent burn injuries in your home from hot liquid, chemicals or fires, the most common childhood accidents.
Whether your child has a first, second or third degree burn injury, the Burn Team at Children's National is here to guide you through this challenging time.
In our Trauma and Burn video series, learn how your child's burns will be treated at the hospital, how you can care for their burns when they get home and more helpful burn care information.
By minimizing your child's sun exposure and using sunscreen, you can prevent potential damage and scarring.
