Determine how much each employee should be paid and send out the checks.
Hospitals do an excellent job of helping people recover from traumatic injuries. Each time a Doctor, Surgeon, or Nurse treats a patient, they create a mountain of paperwork that lists how the injury occurred and how it was dealt with at the facility. This information helps other people avoid those problems in the future.
A Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator has a role to play in the process. As a Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator, you work closely with the Trauma Registrar. The Trauma Registrar records information into a database, while the Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator mines that database.
Your goal is to determine the sorts of injuries your facility treats on a regular basis. Sometimes, you spot trends. Perhaps kids in your area aren’t wearing seatbelts, or perhaps backyard gardeners are digging into power lines often.
Trends in trauma that happen on a larger scale may also impact your facility, so you scour local, state, and nationwide trauma databases, looking for spikes in particular problems.
Periodically, you meet with your facility’s Trauma Injury Prevention Specialist. This professional teaches classes and holds seminars on the issues you deem important based on your research. Sometimes, these meetings are informal hallway chats, but some issues are so striking that you write formal reports and distribute them to both the Trauma Injury Prevention Specialist and your Medical Director.
When the Trauma Injury Prevention Specialist has held classes and seminars on the topic, you run reports again, making sure those steps have been effective in reducing the incidence of those problems in your facility.
