If a patient is being considered for a one-person trauma:
1) OVERHEAD PAGE: “Trauma Senior to the Trauma Room “
2) Trauma Senior will then triage/assess the patient with the attending to decide if the patient is appropriate for one resident and which resident will take the case.
This will ensure the juniors feel supported in these cases, that the Trauma Senior is aware of the case and can learn as well.
Also, Stu would like to remind you that ALL RED AND YELLOW TRAUMAS require a full Trauma Team activation.
