Polytrauma Life Care Plans
Polytrauma occurs when a patient suffers multiple traumatic injuries at one time, often, but not always, from a serious motor vehicle accident or work-related incident.
Injuries in Polytrauma patients are defined by the widely accepted Injury Severity Score (ISS) and tend to be a serious and complex combination of conditions with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) being the most common. When combined with one of more additional injuries such as spinal cord injury (SCI), burns, amputation, orthopedic or internal injuries, among others, Polytrauma patients generally face an extended and complex treatment and recovery.
MDCLCP can play a valuable role in increasing quality of life for people living with ongoing healthcare requirements from multiple traumatic injuries by creating Life Care Plans outlining the needs and costs associated with future care.
