Trauma Department

The Path to Recovery

Trauma patients are taken from the injury site to the Emergency Department, where a trauma team stabilizes the patient and decides the best treatment. Patients with severe injuries may go to the operating room or intensive care unit. Patients with less severe injuries may be placed in the Transitional Care Unit or trauma/surgical nursing unit.

The overall goal is to stabilize the patient’s condition. As the patient’s condition improves, the trauma team’s emphasis shifts toward physical and cognitive rehabilitation. Follow-up outpatient care includes treatment at the trauma outpatient services (TOPS) clinic.
