Georgia to identify gaps in trauma care

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 27, 2008
The Georgia trauma commission has called in a consultant to assess the state's needs and make recommendations on trauma care, officials said. State officials have declared a crisis in trauma care in Georgia, with some hospitals operating with outdated equipment and operating millions in the red on the service. In some parts of Georgia, an injured person can be 90 minutes or more from a trauma center.
