ITIM has published its annual data report from the NSW Trauma Registry for the 2019–20 financial year. In that year, there were more than 22,000 admissions for traumatic injuries in NSW, of which more than 3,800 were considered major trauma and admitted to a trauma service.
This report describes how the NSW trauma system responded to major trauma patients, from the time of injury and provision of pre-hospital services, through to in-hospital services provided at a NSW trauma service.
The findings from the report assists ITIM to determine whether the NSW trauma system is functioning effectively; ensuring that the right patient arrived at the right hospital in a timely matter.
