This process should be started six months prior to your next proposed trauma application review date.
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, you must designate one and have them follow the Organizational Profile Account Gatekeeper Instruction document.
Steps to apply for designation
After the on-site 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. Each committee meets during the SEMTAC committee meeting day & considers the Scope and Severity Rubric in its designation recommendation. The department then notifies the facility in writing of the designation decision within 30 days of the scheduled committee meeting.
