Is your trauma center prepared to meet the new ACS trauma standards?
With these updated requirements set to take effect in September 2023, hospitals have a matter of months to prepare for complying with the new standards. Our newest guide examines a selection of the updated ACS trauma requirements—specifically standards 4.31 through 4.34, which center on requirements pertaining to staffing levels, certification, and continuing education for trauma registry staff. Meeting these updated requirements might prove especially challenging due to the strain they may place on trauma program budgets and limited staff time.
