May Healthcare Month Observations:
Trauma Awareness Month is May.
More than 199,800 Americans die annually as a result of traumatic injuries and injuries are the leading cause of death among people ages 1-44 years of age in the U.S. - that is more deaths than non-communicable diseases and infectious diseases combined. Injury prevention has been a core value of the American Trauma Society since the Society was founded in 1968 and drives the organization's activities, resource development and advocacy. Each year, a new focus is designated which relates to injury prevention and raising trauma awareness. This year, in collaboration with the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN), and in honor of National Trauma Awareness Month's 30th anniversary, the focus was expanded to bring awareness to the concept that “Injury is No Accident” and that most injuries are preventable through awareness and education. We hope that this campaign and its materials will continue to draw attention to all injury prevention efforts and will invoke change by the community and policy makers. Cuero Regional Hospital will share campaign components across their social media channels and website to help raise awareness.
