Trauma Centers In Orange County

November 26, 1987

According to the Hospital Council of Southern California, a trauma center is a hospital that has dedicated medical staff and special equipment to care for major trauma patients. Trauma patients are defined as persons who have sustained acute injuries which put them at significant risk of mortality or of a severe disability, such as brain damage or reduced usage of a limb. Trauma centers are regionalized to give the doctors a greater opportunity to hone their skills in dealing with those patients, thus increasing the chance of the patient's survival or recovery.
