All serious trauma patients

All serious trauma patients from Aiken are transported to MCG. It has to do with the higher level of trauma care.

Aiken probably turned him away for not enough insurance coverage or no insurance. Its all about the money over there.

Having been an EMT for 22

Having been an EMT for 22 yrs, and having worked for EMS in Aiken I can say all major trauma pts are transported to the nearest appropiate level 1 trauma center which happens to be MCG. This is the standard of care across the country where EMS is concerned. Only exception is if the pt is in respiratory or cardiac arrest, then pt is taken to nearest hospital for stabilization. It has nothing to do with money or the hospital from here to South Dakota or where ever. It is the national standard of care for trauma pts by EMS.

thankyou curly123053...I also

thankyou curly123053...I also want to bring up the fact that there are huge gaps in trauma care across Georgia due to poor funding by the state. Even hospitals like MCG are loosing not only money but Trauma surgeons because of the lack of funding. I suggest everyone visits: http://www.georgiaitsabouttime.org/ and sign the petition...it is time Georgia put more money into the state's trauma system!
