Hospital stresses pre-care for trauma

The National Association of Medical Technicians (NAMT) performed training exercises and testing for Stones River Hospital on Thursday, June 6 to help standardize pre-hospital trauma care. The curriculum, taught world-wide, was designed using military trauma training input, which excels with the best of trauma protocols already in place.

“Trauma effects millions of people annually,” Dr. Michael Thomas of Stones River Hospital replied, “The statistics are astounding. In third world countries, millions die each year due to the fact that no one is trained in what to do for a patient in trauma. This type of ‘hands-on’ skills testing is designed to improve outcomes…and it works!”
