Description

Statewide Trauma Centers. A trauma center is a facility that has made a committment to serve the trauma patient, has met the standards of the trauma system, and has obtained designation as a trauma center. Trauma centers are designated as either level 0 (not a trauma center), I, II, III, IV or V.

North Dakota Department of Health - Trauma Level Designation

Level V Level V facilities are designated by the Department of Health with assistance of staff from the Level II facilities.  A Level V facility must provide evaluation, stabilization and appropriate diagnostics for each trauma patient presenting to their emergency room. When appropriate, these patients must be transferred to a higher level of care.  The facility must meet specific equipment requirements. Data from each of their trauma patients must be entered into the trauma registry for statistical analysis. The patient records are audited and reviewed to assure that quality patient care is given to every trauma patient. An ATLS certified physician, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner must be available 24 hours a day to care for injured patients.

 

Level IV Level IV facilities are held to the same standards as Level V, and additionally are required to have a physician rather than a physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner available 24 hours a day to care for the injured patient.

 

Level III Level III trauma centers are verified by the American College of Surgeons. Level III facilities do not have the full availability of physician specialists available at a Level I or II facility, but do have resources for emergency resuscitation, surgery and intensive care of most trauma patients. The same care, equipment, data entry and performance improvement requirements remain as in Level IV and V.

 

Level II Level II trauma centers are verified by the American College of Surgeons. The Level II facilities in our state function at nearly the same level as a Level I facility. They

attempt to assure 24 hours a day coverage of the various surgical specialists.  They perform rigorous performance improvement, community education and injury prevention services.  Level II Trauma Medical Directors and Coordinators within North Dakota help in the designation process for the Level IV and V facilities in the state, and providing follow-up on patient care outcomes.

 

Level I Level I trauma centers are verified by the American College of Surgeons. A Level I Trauma Center provides the highest level of surgical care to trauma patients with

requirements for various surgical specialists to be available 24 hours a day.  There are requirements for minimum annual volumes of severely injured patients.  Additionally, a Level I center has research requirements related to trauma and is a leader in trauma education, injury prevention, and is a referral resource for communities in nearby regions.


Summary

The North Dakota Health Council in conjunction with the North Dakota Department of Heath, Division of Emergency Health Services, may establish and maintain a comprehensive trauma system for the state.  A hospital that offers emergency services to the public shall meet trauma center designation standards and participate in the trauma system (NDCC 23-01.2-03).
