Your social worker will meet with you to arrange your discharge — either to go home or to a rehabilitation facility. Together, we will create a plan to meet your goals for a safe discharge.
Caring for wounds after leaving the hospital is important. If you don’t care for the wound, it may not heal properly.
People with burn injuries may need more calories and more nutrition to help promote healing. Here are some tips:
Protein, a nutrient found in meats, fish, poultry, beans, legumes, nuts, eggs, and dairy, helps with wound healing by supporting skin growth and building muscle. Eat foods with protein at every meal.
For good general health, you should eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Daily multivitamins with minerals may help.
