Application forms for admission to a Shriners Hospital can be obtained from any Shrine Temple or Shrine Club; by writing to Shriners Hospitals, P.O. Box 31356, Tampa, FL 33631; or by calling the Shriners Hospitals for Children toll-free referral line at 1-800-237-5055. Completed application forms should be returned to the nearest Shriners Hospital.
The sooner a burned child reaches a Shriners Hospital that specializes in burn treatment, the better his chances of recovery.
IN AN EMERGENCY, the referring physician treating a burned child should telephone the chief of staff at the Shriners Hospital in Boston, Cincinnati, Galveston or Sacramento and indicate that he has a patient needing emergency medical care. Transportation of the patient is the responsibility of the patient's family, but many Shrine Temples including Abdallah Shrine offer transportation assistance.
Non-emergency admission for burn care is dependent on the medical needs of the patient and on the availability of beds. Shriners Hospitals are open to children, up to their 18th birthday, regardless of race, religion or relationship to a Shriner.
Application forms for non-emergency admissions to Shriners Hospitals can be obtained from any Shrine Temple or Shrine Club; by writing to Shriners Hospitals, P.O. Box 31356, Tampa, FL 33631; or by calling the Shriners Hospitals for Children toll-free referral line at 1-800-237-5055.
