  1. Impact of Level III verification on trauma admissions and transfer : Comparisons of two rural hospitals. Commentary.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. Houston, Texas (USA), 1996/09/19.

    Purpose 

    To study the impact of Level III verification and other changes in rural hospitals on trauma delivery and to examine factors affecting transfer to a Level I trauma center.

    Setting 

    Two rural Kentucky hospitals and a Level I trauma center.

    Method of Review 

    Concurrent review of all trauma patients in 1988 and re-review of the same parameters in 1995.

    Findings 

    In 1988, both hospitals had similar management practices in trauma care.

    A significant number of patients were transferred for (a) patient choice, (b) serious and/or multiple trauma, (c) specialty care in non-life threatening situations, and (d) to exclude a potentially serious problem seen on radiologic evaluation (usually questionable cervical spine or widened mediastinum).

    Both hospitals had major changes in trauma delivery.

    One hospital received Level III verification, and the other had changes that lessened the general surgeon's involvement with initial evaluation and treatment.

    A re-review in 1995 disclosed major changes at both institutions.

    Transfers to exclude radiologic abnormalities had virtually disappeared.

    The Level III status had increased the surgical involvement in that hospital ; there was actually an increase in patients transferred to the Level I hospital and an increase in patient acuity.

    More operations were performed locally, and the care was more efficiently delivered. (...)
