Trauma Center again
CONCORD รณ After voluntarily relinquishing its Trauma Designation in 2007, officials at Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast have learned the N.C. Office of Emergency Medical Services has reinstated the original Level III Trauma designation.
The notice followed a site visit last month that found no process deficiencies and that the hospital’s ability to work together as a team was apparent.
Trauma Centers in North Carolina are established in one of four categories with one being the highest level. Services provided through a level III facility include a wide range of processes covering both the stabilization and treatment of trauma patients. This year, CMC-NorthEast estimates 85,000 patients will seek treatment in the Emergency Care Center, of which more than 450 will be identified as trauma cases.
Profit-making advice
The Small Business Center at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will offer a course next month designed to help small business owners actually make money.
The three-part seminar, “How to Make Money in Your Business,” will meet 6-8:30 p.m. Oct. 8, 15 and 22 at RCCC’s Cabarrus Business and Technology Center, 660 Concord Parkway North, Concord. There is a registration fee of $79.
Topics will include finding and plugging holes where money is leaking; using systems to make businesses profitable; how to accurately forecast and manage cash flow; and other steps to make businesses solvent and profitable.
