Good Practice Tips

• Identify the type, depth, and extent of the burn.

• Accurately measure the injury and document with photographs.

• Manipulate the child's posture to reflect the position at the time of the injury.

• Assess the child's developmental skills. Can the child climb? Turn on a tap?

• Assess for other signs of abuse.

• Assessment of the home or place of injury with reenactment of the episode to include the events leading up to the injury, the child's position at the time of the incident, the length of time the child was exposed to the heat or liquid, the temperature of the appliance or liquid, and measurements of suspected appliances (e.g., the height/depth of the bath, height of the work surface, and position of appliance).

• Remember that burns and infection can coexist.
