Description of Subjects/Issues The proposed rule changes seek to ensure that patient safety and adequate care are provided by standardizing expectations about what will be available in facilities choosing to expand their scope of care beyond the minimum requirements for the designation level. The amendments do not change the current standards for trauma designation but lay out additional requirements for lower level trauma centers providing care to trauma patients with brain and spinal cord/column injuries as well as clarifying types of patients that may be kept after consultation.
Purpose/Objective of Rule This rule identifies neurosurgical capability as a potential expanded scope service offered by Level III trauma centers and adds specifications regarding what types of trauma patients with brain and spinal cord/column injuries may be kept at Level III and IV designated trauma centers.
