"The best burn care anywhere in the world!"

Jim Doucette

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) recently conferred a bronze-level Beacon Award for Excellence on the Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center at UC Davis Medical Center, Sacramento.

The Beacon Award for Excellence recognizes unit caregivers who successfully improve patient outcomes.

I let everyone that I talk to about our charity know that Sacramento really has the best burn care anywhere in the world! With our two excellent burn units at UC Davis Hospital and Shriners, the people of our community really are very lucky to have this resource right in our back yard. Way to go Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center Nurses!!!– Jim Doucette
