  Purpose

There have been multiple articles done regarding oral hygiene on patients in burn and intensive care patients. All articles agree the need for good oral hygiene in these special needs patients. They also note that more research needs to be done on this subject, yet have no direction of how to proceed in this research. Currently, no research has been done on the burn/intensive care patient to see if there is a difference form the non-hospitalized patient which oral hygiene protocol is based on.
