Trauma Rules

The following trauma rules and applicable exhibits will go into effect on January 1, 2013, however, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) understands that it is necessary to allow time for pre-hospital and hospital systems to develop appropriate policies and procedures, and communicate changes with staff. As such, OHA will require that standards be met beginning in July 2013 as trauma hospital surveys are conducted. This will allow six months for pre-hospital and hospital systems to come into compliance.
