Our partnering hospitals made a commitment to provide the highest possible level of pediatric trauma care in their respective communities and have aligned alongside Cincinnati Children’s with the intent to continuously improve upon the quality and safety of care provided to their injured pediatric patients.
Collaborative partners have
successfully implemented a range of improvement initiatives including:
Cincinnati Children’s has
assisted with the verification process at two PTTC hospitals:
Both hospitals were successfully
verified as Level II Pediatric Trauma Centers, and both had the PTTC listed as
a key strength of their program
Cincinnati Children’s is
currently partnering with Sanford Hospital in Fargo, ND, designing a customized
program, and moving towards ACS verification.
Our partnering facilities come
to Cincinnati Children’s to train with our hands-on high fidelity Human Patient
Simulator in order to enhance their efficiency, communication, and confidence
during pediatric trauma resuscitation.
Utilizing real trauma case based scenarios from their respective
facilities, a multidisciplinary team comprised of trauma surgeons, emergency medicine
physicians, staff nurses, respiratory therapists and other ancillary personnel
actively work through each scenario as they would in real-life
resuscitation. Upon completion, a formal
debriefing is held where positive, constructive performance improvement
feedback is provided and input is encouraged from all team members involved.
Trauma Services staff at Cincinnati Children's simulate an emergency situation.
