Dealing with trauma

edited August 2019 in Pediatrics
Per request from Dr. Doug Campbell: Looking for information on how CDI professionals are dealing with documentation related to trauma in pediatric/children's hospitals. Please email Melissa Varnavas at, if you're looking at these type of records.


  • Melissa,

    I don't see any responses to this post so I'm not sure it's still relevant, but I do review documentation related to trauma at Johns Hopkins All Children's.  Please give Dr. Campbell my contact information so that I can better understand his question.

  • We are a pediatric trauma center and we review all trauma patients admitted to the hospital as well as the kids who are treated in the ED and discharged.  CDI participates in the trauma case reviews twice a month and has the ability to do short education tidbits in this case review regarding diagnoses that were missed or could have been better documented.  Val

  • We are a level one pediatric trauma center and CDI does review these cases.
