Trauma Awareness Day

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

GW Hospital
6th Floor
Weingold Conference Center


GW Hospital

GW Hospital and Babak Sarani, MD, FACS, Chief of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery and Associate Professor of Surgery will host Trauma Awareness Day on Monday, Nov. 25, with a program and reception reuniting trauma team members with the patients whose lives they helped save. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to Noon on the 6th floor in the Weingold Conference Room.

Trauma Awareness Day offers a unique time for both patients and hospital staff to show appreciation for the ways they have touched each other’s lives. In many trauma cases, patients can be in the hospital for several months, and during that time, patients and their families become intimately known to the hospital staff.  They celebrate triumphs together and regroup after setbacks.  But many times, staff members are left to wonder what has become of their patients once they leave the hospital.
