Educational Awareness

Presented by Patricia Feager



National Burn Awareness Week began on February 3 and runs through February 9  Please click the link above to learn more information about what you can do to prevent burns. Cooking safety begins at home. Regardless of age, everyone needs to be aware of what not to do in the kitchen. With the attraction of Gourmet Kitchens, Open Kitchens for entertaining, remodeling the kitchen, and watching entertaining Cooking Shows on T.V. it is essential you know how to prevent burns from occurring in the first place. 


Skin covers a lot of territory on the human body. Are you aware that if the adult skin was laid out flat, it would cover about 21 square feet and that, of course, depends on the size of the individual? Seniors, babies, and children have thin skin and can burn easier and are at risk for deeper burns. Once burned, there is always a chance of getting an infection. With the cost of Health Insurance, Hospital bills, and charges for Medical Facilities, isn't it better to prevent burns in the first place?


There are three layers of skins:


  • Epidermis (outer layer)
  • Dermis (thick layer of tissue, blood capillaries, nerve endings, etc)
  • Subcutaneous Fat (deepest layer of skin)

Skin burns are deeply connected to vascular, immune, hormonal, and the nervous system. Severe burns may cause physical, mental, and emotional distress, including financial loss, time off work, possible disfiguring, and pain. 


It is fun to play and experiment in a new kitchen while entertaining guests. Play it safe. Please watch the video at the beginning of this blog post, have gauze and bandages handy, and know what to do in case of an emergency.

Thank you for sharing this safety message. As indicated in the video, just a few actions can help reduce burns (using back burner, turning pot handle away, etc). Thanks again and have a great day!

Great PSA, Patricia. I had no idea... but I suspect people are not as aware of safety precautions vis-a-vis burns as they should be.

Oh, you struck a chord with this old nurse, Patricia!

Absolutely wonderful public service announcement - something every single individual should be aware of.

Our body's largest organ is the skin and burns are some of the worst injuries I ever saw in my career. I have a dear friend who specializes in the treatment of burns and her patients' issues go well beyond the skin.
