The research will be looking at patient outcomes for healing of donor sites after a split-thickness skin graft procedure for a burn or skin tissue loss. Donor site healing time, infection rate, cosmetic outcome, and patient's rating of pain will be compared between two donor site dressings, Glucan II and Aquacel Ag.
