TO IMPROVE EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AND TRAUMA CARE in the Philippines embodied in Senate Bill ...
Pass Senate Bill #-2279 Now : AN ACT TO IMPROVE EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AND TRAUMA CARE IN THE PHILIPPINES.
Why is this important?
Current statutes of Trauma Care and Management in the Philippines are not adequately addressed. Its limited portrayal in every surgical service need to be recognized to allow a definite roadmap to the application of Advanced Trauma Life Support and its derivation of Trauma Levels of care applicable to every hospital.
Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago introduced Senate Bill 2279 which seeks to improve Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Care by: (a) empowering the Department of Health to identify designated trauma centers, (b) establishing a National Clearinghouse on Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Care; and (c) providing for standards with respect to trauma care centers.
A quick call to action by signing this petition to Tell the 15th Congress that it is about time to act quickly and pass Senate Bill 2279.
