So you're saying a trauma center is a trauma center is a trauma center right? Wrong. There are (or can be, definetly should be everywhere in my book) multiple different levels. Here it's 4. There will be a huge difference between a local hospital that can produce an ER Doc, 2RN's, has a surgeon in house and everyone else on call and a regional hospital that can produce multiple ER Docs, RN's of various types,RT's, anesthisiologists, neurosurgeons, surgeons, and chaplains in just a couple of minutes. Just because a hospital get's itself classified as a trauma center doesn't always make it the best choice; I don't know how Minnasota does it, but maybe you should look into that. Not to mention the fact that a trauma center is definetly not always a burn center; often they can be two different things entirely. That kid needed a burn center, not a trauma hospital. So unless it happened to be both...straight to the bird with him.Why do you shoot our Er's in the back?
They are both listed as trauma centers.
This incident happened some years ago, I think i pointed that out.
We do have hospitals out here that are not trauma centers, Like community Memorials and such. We do our best to not transport to them.
Incidently that young boy was on that air ship in under 20 min.
I had a chance to talk to an Aunt of the boy just 2 weeks ago and he did very well, Very little 3rd Degree burn. In fact that is what caused me to bring it up.
