Pediatric Inter-Facility Transfer Guidelines
The Pediatric Subcommittee of the Governor’s EMS and Trauma Advisory Council (GETAC) has drafted a compilation of guidelines that hospitals may utilize as their own transfer guidelines in meeting state requirements for designation. The guidelines were developed in accordance with published standards across the nation at other trauma centers as well as publications from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). The guidelines are meant to be inclusive of pediatric critical illness as well as pediatric trauma.
