Before beginning work on this discussion forum, please review the link “Doing Discussion Questions Right,” the expanded grading rubric for the forum, and any specific instructions for this topic.
Before the end of the week, begin commenting on at least two of your classmates’ responses. You can ask technical questions or respond generally to the overall experience. Be objective, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. Submit your responses in the Discussion Area.
Review your lectures. Then:
- Compare the difference between ER/Trauma units Designation and Verification.
- What agency is responsible for these functions?
- List detailed requirements for Level 1, 2, and 3 Trauma units as outlined by the ACS (American College of Surgeons).
- Search your state and identify how many Trauma units are designated in your own state.
Use resources from the Week 1 Assignment and South University Library as necessary.
To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Your initial posting should be addressed at 300-500 words. Submit your document to this Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Be sure to cite your sources using APA format.
Respond to your peers throughout the week. Justify your answers with examples, research, and reasoning. Follow up posts need to be submitted by the end of the week.
