Trauma Surge Planning

The purpose of the Trauma Surge Plan and training is to prepare non-trauma hospitals for receiving and holding trauma patients in the event of a mass trauma that overwhelms the normal day-to-day trauma system operations. Work will include: 1)  Design, development, maintenance of a website designated for medical surge resources; 2) Training (American College of Surgeons (ACS), Disaster Management & Emergency Preparedness (DMEP) courses); 3) Deliver Trauma Surge Plan and video to 17 UASI Region hospitals; 4) Deliver Trauma Surge Plan and video to hospitals throughout the State of Oregon
