Teleburn Services & Burn Care at Garnet Health
Burns can be complex injuries with potentially long-term consequences for your health. If you or a loved one needs burn care, it’s important that experts provide swift, accurate diagnosis and treatment. That’s exactly what Garnet Health Medical Center - Catskills delivers through our Teleburn services. Our partnership with Lehigh Valley Health Network allows you to receive around-the-clock expert burn care in Orange and Sullivan counties.
Specialized Burn Care
Minor, first-degree burns are often treatable at home. More severe burns, which can affect multiple layers of skin and damage underlying muscle or bone, require medical attention from experts who specialize in these types of injuries. Teleburn is a telemedicine service that allows our emergency medicine doctors to consult with specialists at the Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Regional Burn Center 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring you receive the most appropriate care for burns of all types. With this input, Garnet Health doctors can treat you or, if necessary, stabilize you prior to arranging care at the closest burn unit.
How Teleburn Works
Seek emergency care for a burn if it’s large, deep or affects a sensitive area of your body, such as your hands, eyes or mouth. When you arrive at a Garnet Health emergency department, the members of our medical team will begin Teleburn services if they feel a consultation with a burn expert is warranted. Here’s how the process works:
- Our emergency medicine doctors upload photos of, and information about, your burn injury to a secure website.
- A burn specialist at Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Regional Burn Center reviews the photos and information.
- The specialist suggests the most appropriate course of treatment for you.
- If necessary, the expert recommends transferring you to the nearest burn unit for higher-level, specialized care as soon as possible.
