(From the November 2012 Issue of MedStat)
The Nationwide Children’s Trauma Program actively supports the new Ohio legislation regarding “No Texting While Driving.” The Trauma team encourages the community to print and sign the “No Texting While Driving” pledge form, which was also distributed in the November 2012 Medical Staff packet.
The team hopes families will post and sign these forms as a promise to each other to help keep their family and their community safer by not being distracted while they’re behind the wheel. The Trauma Program web page has additional information on this legislation, a link to a Trauma Grand Rounds presentation regarding Distracted Driving, as well as other video links.
For additional information regarding the Trauma program see the 2011 Trauma Annual Report, also distributed in the November packet. Stats regarding Trauma, Transport and EMS are provided, along with links to video interviews with patients and program managers.
