DHS Releases 2021 Trauma Year in Review
2021 saw a return to traumatic injury trends more in line with what was seen before the COVID-19 pandemic, but many of the challenges due to the pandemic remained, compounding those challenges inherent to trauma systems. Trauma staff, like you, in the
Wisconsin Trauma Care System rose to these challenges. We are grateful for the quality of care provided and dedication to performance improvement shown by the Wisconsin Trauma Care System. If you have any further questions or suggestions for information that should be included in future editions, please let us know.DHS has produced a 10-page report highlighting facts and trends in data submitted to the Wisconsin Trauma Registry. The report breaks data down by demographics, mechanisms, counties, admissions and several other categories. The data displayed in tables and graphs for easy viewing.
