Genesys receives trauma center reverification again

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys once again earned verification as a Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons' verification review committee. After a two-day site visit, the college commended Genesys for its “demonstrated commitment to provide superior trauma care.”
Genesys voluntarily has chosen to be a verified trauma center and must meet rigid standards established by the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma to maintain its Level II Trauma Center status.

Genesys has maintained its Level II Trauma Center verification for the past nine years.

Clinical requirements for trauma center verification are the same for Level I trauma centers and Level II trauma centers. This means Genesys can accept all trauma patients, and must meet the same clinical requirements as Level I trauma centers. These requirements include a review of all trauma admissions to assure process and performance standards are met.

Verified traumas centers must have:

prompt availability of trauma-trained surgeons, physicians, nurses and support staff around the clock

ongoing trauma education and training programs

injury prevention programs for staff and the community

commitment by the medical staff (includes trauma surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons, and other physician specialists) trauma-trained clinicians in these areas: emergency, surgery, respiratory therapy, lab, radiology and interventional radiology, critical care, nursing, spiritual care and rehabilitation

Established by the American College of Surgeons in 1987, the Committee on Trauma's Consultation/Verification program for hospitals promotes the development of trauma centers where participants provide not only the hospital resources necessary for trauma care, but also the entire spectrum of care to address the needs of all injured patients.
