Level II sans residents

Two Level II centers in NJ do not have residents. Both are ACS verified. For
details, their trauma directors are: Louis D'Amelio at Capital/Fuld
(LDAmelio at chsnj.org) or Felix Garcia at Jersey Shore Medical Center
(FGarcia at meridianhealth.com).

Norwalk Hospital (Norwalk, CT) was the first ACS COT verified Level II
Trauma Center in CT, and has remained so WITHOUT SURGICAL RESIDENTS.  They
have a PA surgical residency program, and as such staff the house with
PA-C's that are enrolled in the 1-year surgical PA residency program as well
as full time PA-C's that have completed a surgical PA residency program
(either home-grown or from elsewhere).  

It CAN be done.  It ain't easy - but it can be done.


Best to all,
Ron

At Point-Counterpoint (Atlantic City), Dr. Paul Dabrowski (Reading, PA)
presented the topic of Level II Verification without residents.  His program
met ACS requirements with a mixture of employed and stipended community
surgeons, plus a small army of extenders.

I'm thinking this accomplishment cannot be unusual, mostly because WE did it
(employed surgeons and a couple of PA's).  But there must be any number of
models out there, and folks in Bangor would like to know more about what the
rest of the world does.

Are you at an ACS Level II center without a residency?  If so, what's your
staffing construct?  Are you paying for coverage?

All experiences and insights appreciated.

Bizarre error: I meant February of 2006, of course.  Wish I could blame the
drugs, but I'm just a feeb.

"...As for HIPAA, see the previous response.  If a doctor in Corpus Christi
tells me that a lawyer shot in the neck during a quail hunting accident in
Kenedy County in February of 1996 had a blood alcohol of 0.85, that value is
protected information, and its divulgence is a violation of
federal law --    especially if you're the poor drunk bag of
birdshot..."
