    This study was designed to document the reasons hospitals have been unsuccessfully peer reviewed as potential trauma centers.


    120 trauma center reviews were performed by a peer review program between September 1987 and December 1992 using the American College of Surgeons (ACS) criteria.

    Fifty-four hospitals had criteria deficiencies

    These reviews were studied for criteria deficiencies for each hospital with documentation of frequency and relationship to re-review outcome.


    There are 108 ACS criteria.

    The 54 hospitals had various combinations of 28 different criteria deficiencies.

    Deficiencies ranged from 1 to 15 per hospital.

    Thirty-one hospitals underwent a second review.

    Twenty-five hospitals had corrected the deficiencies and were verified.
