Abstract

The authors analyze the major trauma recorded in a couple of years in the Emergency Room of the San Paolo Hospital of Savona after the setting, in the same district, of the trauma center at the Santa Corona Hospital of Pietra Ligure. Despite the policy of centralization adopted the amount of major trauma seen at the San Paolo Hospital remained unchanged over time and the number of patients who are not rescued by medicalized ambulance is still significant. These observations underline the importance of periodically reviewing the protocols and make training on trauma also in hospitals that are not recognized as trauma center.
