Nontrauma surgeons can safely take call at an academic, rural level one trauma center

from MDLinx

Care protocols can facilitate effective management of injured patients across a spectrum of providers. It is uncertain whether patient care is compromised when a full time trauma surgeon is not on–call in the rural setting, where manpower may be a challenge. This study suggests that there was no increase in mortality, delayed diagnosis or missed injuries when non–trauma surgeons took call. Systems of care and algorithms can be developed that provide staffing flexibility yet maintain safe and effective care to trauma patients in the rural setting. more
