A trauma center is a hospital equipped to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to patients suffering traumatic injuries. Trauma centers are designated from Level I to Level V. The role of a Level IV Trauma Center is to stabilize and transfer the most ill to a higher level of care.
All emergency patients are triaged by an appropriately trained registered nurse and medically screened by a qualified practitioner to determine if a medical emergency exists. Appropriate care is then provided to meet the needs of the patient and family under the direction of the Emergency physician.
Qualified physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses and an interdisciplinary team provide assessment and treatment. Services and treatments not directly available in the Emergency Department are accessed by referral or transfer to an appropriate service.
Frequent procedures and services provided include, but are not limited to, suturing lacerations, phlebotomy, radiographic diagnostics, lab testing, EKG monitoring, pulse oximetry, medication administration and pain control. The Emergency Department evaluates a diverse list of patient complaints and diagnoses.
The Emergency Department, located on the 2nd (main) Floor of Mon General, features 26 private treatment and exam rooms.
