What Makes The Trauma Centre A Good One?
In medical terms, a trauma is a situation when a health crisis happens unexpectedly. Unlike a cut or a bruise, which would get qualified under ‘emergencies’, trauma is of a more dangerous nature.
Now, you must understand that during such a situation, waiting is not an option. The first thing you need to do if somebody you know is in this situation is to call an ambulance and get the person immediate medical assistance.
Choosing the right healthcare provider is necessary. Taking the person to a nearby hospital might help buy time, but might not lead to the best outcome. Hence, it’s essential to go to a fully-equipped hospital to ensure that the patient gets the best possible care, without having to wait.
Why A Trauma Center And Not An Emergency Room?
Trauma center and emergency room are different. An emergency room is provides treatment for illness or injuries on the same day. But a trauma center is inside an emergency room where you can admit the cases where there is an issue of immediate survival.
What Is A Trauma Center?
A trauma center is a hospital for patients suffering from traumatic injuries. A trauma center can also refer to an emergency department but it does not have any specialized services to care for victims of major trauma.
When To Go To A Trauma Centre?
The trauma can be due to accident injuries, gunshot wounds, tab wounds, major burns, serious falls, blunt trauma (striking or being struck by an object), and traumatic brain injuries which would leave you disturbed or in a deep distress. You cannot go to a trauma center by your own in such a condition. The ambulance takes the injured person to the hospital.
What Does A Good Trauma Centre Have?
The trauma centre should have an ambulance, stretcher.
It should also have an operating room and immediate access to emergency blood supply.
The trauma centre also requires highly skilled professionals and equipment’s as most of the trauma cases come in a life or death battling situation.
Trauma that comes in an unexpected way is always a serious medical condition, where it requires the hand of an expert doctor and his or her team to save the life. It is also important to take the patient to a good trauma center. Trauma center outcomes are influenced by the expertise of team and experience.
