|The paper described the intensive care nursing experience for a patient with burn injuries caused by a petrochemical explosion accident that occurred in Kaohsiung. The disaster made the patient suffer from secondary to tertiary severe burn injuries on her four limbs and body, with a 54% TBSA (total body surface area) severe burn. Her boyfriend was also injured in the same explosion, and brought to the intensive care unit (ICU) to receive treatment. They both not only suffered from physical pain in their bodies, but also experienced the threats and impacts on their lives. The fear and terror in their hearts could not be easily eliminated. During my nursing period of the patient from Aug. 1 to Aug. 20, 2014, I employed overall nursing evaluation to collect information, and found that my patient had health problems of acute pain, body image disturbance, and posttraumatic responses. During the nursing process, I treated her sincerely and took a positive attitude, provided her with special nursing techniques to reduce the pain of her wounds, led her to express her physical and mental distress, changed her pessimistic mindset, gave her positive encouragement and psychological support continuously, increased her optimistic feeling towards the suffering, and reduced her fear when facing the wounds. I applied a nursing model based on posttraumatic growth theory, making the patient have less negative emotion, treasure her life, and realize the goodliness of living in the world at the moment. Finally, she was transferred out of the ICU smoothly. It is hoped that the nursing experience can be provided as a reference for other nursing staff in offering intensive care nursing to patients with burn injuries.
