Description of Subjects/Issues The Department is requesting a rulemaking hearing in order to propose revisions to 6 CCR 1015-4, Chapter Three, Section 306, Expanded Scope of Care for Designated Trauma Centers Level III and IV. These rule revisions add a definition for ‘Emergent Surgery,’ expand transfer criteria to include transferring any patient(s) whose injuries surpass the facility’s scope of care, add criteria for when patients require emergent surgery and add additional medical conditions which Level IVs are required to transfer to a higher Level facility. These revisions will ensure that patients at Level III and IV facilities get the care necessary, and if the facility is not able to provide that care, the revisions ensure that patients are transferred to a facility equipped to handle their medical conditions.
