Note to our readers

We are devoting this issue of the newsletter entirely to performance improvement (PI). The medical director of Mayo Clinic's Level I Trauma Center in Rochester, Minn., explains why.

Patient Care

Successful disaster response takes resources, training

The medical response to the Boston Marathon bombing is a textbook example of how cities can rapidly and effectively respond to mass casualty incidents. But what happens in communities and facilities that lack Boston's resources?

Disasters stretch large and small hospitals

A serious bus crash and damaging tornado in southeastern Minnesota put community hospitals and the receiving Level I center to the test.

Practice Guidelines and Research

State trauma systems raise bar on care
Minnesota's statewide trauma system seeks to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with major trauma. Critically injured patients have better outcomes in states with mature trauma systems, but even relatively young programs, like Minnesota's, can produce measurable improvements in care.

Trauma care at the border
Transporting critically injured patients across state and international borders creates unique challenges. Regional and international agencies are working to solve them.
