Trauma and Critical Care
David H. Livingston, MD, Division Chief, Trauma
The Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care provides 24-hour, front-line attending coverage to the New Jersey Trauma Center, the state-designated Level I Trauma Center serving northern New Jersey. It offers a full range of trauma services with subspecialty assistance in orthopaedics, neurosurgery, urology, plastic surgery and related fields. Dedicated operating rooms are immediately available for critically injured patients. The Trauma-Surgical Intensive Care Unit, staffed by the Division, provides ongoing monitoring and treatment that is essential for patients with multiple injuries. A neurosurgical intensive care unit receives patients with neurological trauma. A dedicated4-bed step-down nursing unit is maintained to accommodate less severely injured patients and those no longer in need of ICU care.
The trauma surgeons maintain personal, one-to-one follow-up with their patients and communicate with case managers and primary care physicians throughout the patient’s hospital stay and ongoing outpatient treatment.
The New Jersey Trauma Center serves as the medical control for the NorthSTAR Air Medical Helicopter Transport Program, which serves the Level I and II Trauma Centers of the northern and central portions of the state. NorthSTAR is available for both on-scene and inter-facility transports, based upon severity of injury and ground transport time.
