What Is the Difference Between an Emergency Room and a Trauma Center?

An emergency room or urgent care center is a place where people know they can go to receive medical attention quickly. The injuries and illnesses seen by an emergency room staff may or may not be immediately serious or life-threatening.

A trauma center deals with emergencies that are outside the scope of what an ER is equipped for. It is required to have certain staff and equipment on-hand at all times that are prepared to save lives at a moment’s notice. The cases seen by a trauma center are immediately and seriously life-threatening, and they can range from accident injuries to violent crime injuries.

What Do Trauma Center Levels Mean?

Trauma Centers are given different levels based on their available resources.

There are also Pediatric Trauma Centers, which specialize in child injuries and have certain pediatric specialists and equipment on hand.
