|When a member of the community experiences a physically traumatic event, our trauma center provides the necessary immediate care. |
A trauma-trained nurse and ED practitioner are immediately available, and physicians are available upon the patient's arrival.
The Level IV designation we have received means that we provide an initial evaluation when a trauma patient arrives at RMC. After the initial evaluation, our team works to stabilize the patient and order and perform any necessary diagnostic tests. We can provide surgery or critical-care services. If our trauma team feels a higher-level of care is needed to treat the patient, we transfer the patient - via ambulance or helicopter - to another facility.
