A statewide trauma system makes the delivery of trauma care cost effective, reduces the incidence of inappropriate or inadequate trauma care, prevents unnecessary suffering and reduces the personal and societal burden resulting from trauma.
The goals and objectives of a trauma care system include:
- Providing optimal care for the trauma victim;
- Preventing unnecessary death and disability from trauma and emergency illness; and
- Conducting trauma prevention activities to decrease the incidence of trauma.
The statewide trauma system is divided into four regions (map), each with a regional committee.
