Regional Trauma Plans

Regional Trauma Plan Synopsis

Alabama Trauma Regions' Plans were developed in the same format to ensure consistency and compliance with Alabama Trauma and Health System legislation. In addition, the trauma plans include all currently approved Trauma and Health System Rules. The differences relate to the Regional Advisory Council membership and the secondary triage times.

Out-of-state hospitals requesting to be a designated hospital in the Alabama Trauma and Health System will follow the same process as outlined in 420-2-2-.03. Out-of-state hospitals will be required to meet the same standards as Alabama hospitals and follow the same survey and reporting processes.
