Patient Care

Time is life for trauma patients, too

SMRTAC trauma activation criteria call for transferring critically injured patients to definitive care within 20 minutes. But some patients can spend more than two hours undergoing diagnostic tests in critical access hospitals.

APPs play varied roles in trauma care

Over the last decade, advanced practice providers (APPs) have become an increasingly important part of most trauma centers, but their roles can vary widely.
