Harbor Beach Community Hospital is First Hospital in Huron County to Achieve Trauma Level IV Designation

Paul Clabuesch, President/CEO of Harbor Beach Community Hospital is proud to announce the achievement of Trauma Level IV Designation by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services for three years through August 3, 2020. Harbor Beach Community Hospital is the first hospital in Huron County to achieve an official Trauma designation by the Michigan Department of Community Health since the enforcement agency identified the need for every hospital in the State of Michigan to be trauma certified.

On August 3, 2017 a Trauma Designation Assessment was completed by Amy Koester, R.N. of Spectrum Health (Level I Trauma Facility/State of Michigan Trauma Committee) and Lydia Donoghu, M.D., Pediatric Surgeon of Henry Ford Hospital (Level I Trauma Facility). The day long assessment included a review to ensure the hospital has staff in the Emergency Department who have obtained training in caring for trauma patients, implementing trauma activation protocols including having Laboratory and Diagnostic Imaging staff available 24 hours a day, an ongoing quality assessment program focusing on trauma, education for community, schools and agreements with tertiary hospitals to accept our patients when a higher level of care is required. The results of this assessment were submitted to the State of Michigan Trauma Committee who met in September 2017 and the committee officially provided the Trauma Level IV Designation to Harbor Beach Community Hospital.

Strengths of the organization noted by the assessment team included good teamwork and dedicated staff across the board from administration to all staff in providing excellent care to all trauma patients, a good relationship with the local EMS services and Level I, II and III tertiary hospitals who provide a higher level of care where patients from Harbor Beach Community Hospital are transferred to upon stabilization.

Members of the Trauma Certification Team who participated in the assessment included: Joshua White, M.D., Trauma Director; Heather Kowaleski, R.N., Trauma Program Manager/Director of Emergency Department; Patty O’Neil, R.N., Director of Quality Improvement and Deanna Braun, Risk Manager.

Paul Clabuesch stated, “The tremendous amount of time and effort the group has put into achieving the Level IV Trauma Designation by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is very honorable. This group of individuals and their coworkers who worked on this project should be commended for their dedication to providing the highest quality of care to not only trauma patients as well as to all of our Emergency Department patients."
