All trauma facilities must submit an updated profile at least once a year. The profile must be updated before your designation application can be started. If your organization does not have a profile gatekeeper, a person must be designated in this role. The designated gatekeeper must follow the instructions found on our organizational profiles page.
Steps to apply for designation
This process should be started six months prior to your next proposed trauma review.
After the review, findings will be presented to either the Designation Review Committee for levels III-V or the State Emergency Medical and Trauma Services Advisory Council for levels I,II, and RPTC. The Scope and Severity Rubric is used to determine a designation recommendation. The department then notifies the facility in writing of the designation decision within 30 days of the scheduled committee meeting.
