If an injury threatens your life, an organ or a limb, you need trauma care.

Follow-up care

After trauma care, rehabilitation helps the injured part of your body start to work again and feel better. A social worker or case manager can guide you to other services and resources that ease your recovery after you leave the hospital.

Preventing injuries

Trauma Nurses Talk Tough presentations

Watch for a Ballad Health program at your child’s school or a community event teaching how to stay safe at play, at home and on the road.

Or e-mail caitlin.camper@balladhealth.org or heatherly.sifford@balladhealth.org to schedule a Trauma Nurses Talk Tough session that covers:

  • Seatbelt safety
  • Helmet use during bicycling and skating
  • Dangers of speeding and driving when you can’t stay alert or pay full attention

Ballad Health nurses can tailor the program to children or adults.
