Compare the difference between ER/Trauma units Designation and Verification.
Emergency room/trauma units are placed designated for catering for the needs of those in

critical condition, especially related to severe injuries. The designation process refers to the
guidelines set forth at the local or state level of governance for classification of the trauma
centers (Marmo & D'Arcy, 2013). It is based on care quality, resources, number of beds and such
requirements. On the other hand, verification refers to the evaluation process used by the
American College of Surgeons (ACS) to classify trauma centers, as well as to upgrade care. As
such, the ACS does not engage in the designation process but only verifies if a trauma center
meets the needed criteria, resources, and care quality (Marmo & D'Arcy, 2013). The major
verifiable elements of the trauma centers include patient care, policies, performance
improvement, readiness, commitments, and resources.

What agency is responsible for these functions?
The American College of Surgeons is responsible for the verification process whereas the

state and local governments have the mandate of conducting trauma center designation (Marmo
& D'Arcy, 2013).

List detailed requirements for Level 1, 2, and 3 Trauma units as outlined by the
ACS (American College of Surgeons).

Only issue was the guy's response time which was a bit long, which made me a bit anxious. Reached out to the help desk and they helped me out, turns out the tutors aren't all from US which meant there was a time difference. No issues on the quality.
