* Not a Paramedic Receiving Unit. To be designated as a Paramedic Receiving Unit by the Orange County Emergency Medical Services Agency, an emergency room must meet additional requirements -- including 24-hour laboratory, X-ray and other diagnostic capabilities -- as well as provide around-the-clock basic emergency service.

** Trauma Centers; are specifically equipped and staffed to treat the most serious injuries. State law requires one trauma center per 350,000 population. Orange County's goal is to have residents no more than 20 minutes from such a center, no matter where they are in the county.

Basic Emergency Medical Service, Physician on Duty--meets the provision of emergency medical care in a specifically designated area of a hospital that is equipped and staffed at all times to provide prompt care to any patient presenting urgent medical problems.

Comprehensive Emergency Medical Service--meets the provision of diagnostic and therapeutic services for unforeseen physical and mental disorders which, if not promptly treated, would lead to marked suffering, disability or death. The scope of services is comprehensive, with in-house capability for managing all medical situations on a definitive and continuing basis.
