Reporting And Data

Every provider of health care must report second or third degree burns to 5% or more of the body; burns to the upper respiratory tract or laryngeal adema resulting from inhalation of heated air; or burns which may result in death to the local fire department (counties w/populations > 45,000) or to the Nevada State Fire Marshall (counties w/populations < 45,000).

Facilities must report patient or staff death or serious injury associated with a burn incurred from any source in the course of a patient care process in a healthcare setting, including operating room flash fires (second-degree), hot water, sunburn in the patient with decreased ability to sense pain, and smoking in the patient care environment.
