The following training sections are very detailed, step-by-step guides on how to complete an incident form in the Indiana Trauma Registry.

  • Demographics

    The demographics section is the first page of an incident form where the patient's medical record number, injury date and time, and basic information about the patient are entered, including: name, DOB, race, gender, and address.

  • Pre-Hospital

    The pre-hospital section includes information as how the patient got to the hospital, barriers to caring for the patient, and EMS run sheet information including: dates and times of dispatch, arrival to scene, and departure from scene, as well as initial vital signs recorded by the EMS provider.

  • Referring

    The referring hospital section is only used if the patient was transferred from an initial hospital to another hospital.  If the patient was transferred and information was received from the initial hospital, the patient's vital signs, procedures performed, and medications administered while at the initial hospital can be captured here.

  • Diagnosis

    The patient's diagnosis codes are entered using both an ICD-10 code format, as well as an AIS code format.  Codes can be looked up using keywords or drop-down menus.  When AIS codes are entered, the ISS score is calculated.

  • Co-Morbidity

    If the patient has a comorbid condition, a condition from the national list can be chosen or a condition can be typed in.  Additional notes can also be made about the condition.
