Abstract:

Evidence-based Practice Abstract

Purpose: Developed process to ensure all known patient care details of the expected trauma patient are clearly communicated to all member of the trauma team.

Design: A quality assurance project lead by the Chief Trauma Surgeon and the Director of the Emergency Department. Qualitative project with results obtain from direct observations and participant interviews.

Setting: 54-Bed large urban Level 1 trauma center within the mid-west United States.

Participants/Subjects: Trauma core team consisting of the Trauma Lead, Trauma Registered Nurse, Emergency Department physician, Trauma Tech, and Emergency Department Charge Nurse.

Methods: Once the core Trauma Team is assembled, and prior to the arrival of the patient, the Emergency Department Charge Nurse would provide a verbal report of all transcribed details as provided by the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) personnel during their pre-hospital radio call. With the conclusion of the Charge Nurse presentation of the data obtained from EMS report, the team would self-identify their name and their role with respect to the trauma case. The Team Lead would begin to identify suspected needed supplies, equipment, and potential interventions to allow the team members to immediately prepare for use or planning.

Results/Outcomes: Findings pending; results finalized by May1, 2013.

Implications: Preliminary results of interviews, the Trauma Time Out project identified multiple immediate or short-turnaround time changes plus some changes that must occur over a longer period of time (6-12 months). Project has already demonstrated immediate benefits and has made significant increases in preparedness for emergency care for a trauma activation patient.
