Southern Nevada Trauma System
The Southern Nevada Trauma System is a coordinated injury response network that promotes injury prevention and provides specialized care for those who are injured.
Intentional and unintentional injuries are the leading causes of death and disability for those between the ages of 1 and 44 in the United States each year and generate significant social and economic expenses for medical treatment and lost productivity of victims. Further, natural and man-made disasters are capable of producing large numbers of injured patients.
The recognition of the significant impact that traumatic injury has on the individual and society has led to a greater emphasis on the development of trauma systems of care.
