The 411 on Trauma Center Visits

Recent studies have found that individuals who are seriously injured in a car accident are more than thirty percent more likely to survive if they are taken directly to a trauma center, as opposed to being taken to a non-trauma hospital. The study involved statistics recorded from 6,341 accidents in Ontario, Canada between 2002 and 2010. The findings revealed that less than half of the people seriously injured in car accidents are transported directly to a trauma center.  Dr. Avery Nathens, trauma director at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, explains “Minutes matter and severely injured patients can't advocate for themselves so we have the responsibility to ensure that the system works optimally."
