Telehealth and the Burn Center

Our pediatric burn team has implemented the use of telemedicine to successfully improve Emergency Department (ED)-based burn treatment and triage by placing MUSC Health burn personnel at the bedside through existing telemedicine infrastructure, leading to improved outcomes and decreased need for emergency transport from outlying hospitals to MUSC. Our pediatric burn team has partnered with the Virtual Teleconsultation Clinic (VTC) through the MUSC Health Center for Telehealth to offer outpatient pediatric surgery telemedicine consultations to outlying primary care providers.

Patient Resources

The SC Burned Children’s Fund is a partnership between the MUSC Children's Health pediatric burn team and South Carolina firefighters. Firefighters and community partners raise funds through aluminum can recycling and special events to provide funds to support children and their families through burn recovery and to promote burn awareness and fire prevention activities in South Carolina.

The SC Burned Children’s Fund also sponsors an annual summer camp for burn-injured children called Camp ‘Can’ Do.
