Level 4 Work Group – Minnesota Department of Health

Level 4 Work Group

The Level 4 Work Group's charge was to scrutinize the current Level 4 Trauma Hospital criteria requirements and make recommendations to the State Trauma Advisory Council for modifications.

The multidisicplinary work group met regularly to review the current criteria and determined if it still accurately addressed patients' needs and reflected responsible utilization of scarce trauma care resources.
