Is every hospital a trauma center?

No, not every hospital is a trauma center.

A trauma center is ready to take care of a person who has been hurt. Injuries may be from a gunshot wound, car crash, fall, or fire. The emergency room is a part of the trauma center. Doctors and Nurses are specially trained to take care of people with serious injuries. The trauma center has equipment that improves a person’s chance of recovering from injuries. Trauma centers make the difference between life and death.
