"Treatment for electrical burn"
Posted by Keith Essam
After suffering a burn due to an electrical shock I was referred to the minor injuries department by the Romney House Surgery. I was taken into the unit almost immediately with minimum check in. The treatment was excellent. A thorough exploration of the burn was followed by ECG and blood pressure checks then dressing of the wound. The nurse then conferred with the local doctor and gave advice. A check-up was arranged for the following day when the wound was inspected and re-dressed. Advice was given to exercise the fingers with a follow up the following week. NHS at its best!
