Utilizing experienced trauma medical directors and trauma program managers, TETAF has an outstanding team of credentialed trauma surveyors trained to provide survey services for Level III and Level IV Texas hospitals.
Partnering with the Texas Department of State Health Services, TETAF staff provides technical assistance in trauma program development as well as coordination of survey services to ensure a successful designation process.
Services available include initial designation surveys, re-designation surveys and consultative surveys.
TETAF credentialed surveyors will provide the hospital with the required report for submission to the Texas Department of State Health Services, Office of EMS/Trauma for designation or re-designation. While on site, the surveyors will additionally produce a comprehensive Consultation Report for the hospital to use internally to evolve and mature their trauma program. While evaluating the hospital for Trauma Center Designation requirements as defined by Texas Administrative Code 157.125, the TETAF survey experience offers an educational opportunity with experienced, knowledgeable trauma medical staff and trauma program management.
