Consequent to a big fire tragedy which occurred at a function on 3rd of March 1989 at Jamshedpur which left many people dead and an even more number of people with severe burn, a serious need was felt regarding having of a specialised burn care unit in the region. Foundation stone for the burn care unit (BCU) of TMH was laid on 19th December 1989. This self-sufficient unit became fully functional from August 1992 with 18 beds divided into two zones – Septic and Aseptic, and was headed by Plastic Surgeon Dr R Bharat, who served the department till his retirement in the year 2008. The present BCU has fifteen beds in separate cubicles and is provided with all the modern facilities such as modern critical care beds, wall mounted gas pipe lines and suction, monitors and Ventilators. Apart from its therapeutic endeavours, the department has constantly forayed into the realm of social responsibility by undertaking community awareness programmes on prevention of burns through its several outreach programs within the premises of the Tata Steel industrial areas as well as the community at large, in keeping with the Tata steel’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
