Building Louisiana’s Statewide Trauma Care System

LERN is utilizing two nationally recognized trauma care resources to guide the ongoing development of Louisiana’s statewide trauma system. Those resources include the model trauma care systems plan developed by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the trauma consultation/verification program created and administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT).

Louisiana’s statewide trauma system is an inclusive trauma system model that includes State-designated trauma centers but also utilizes most of the other hospitals in Louisiana – according to each hospital’s availability of trauma resources.
