Trauma center brings "golden hour" luster to rural health care

Auto collisions. ATV rollovers. Falls from the roof of a barn. Cattle chute mishaps. Accidents and injuries happen in rural America just as they do in big cities.

The question is: Can rural people survive injuries as well as people in big cities? Studies indicate that where one lives can be important to how one lives or dies.

In the medical field, injury is called trauma. Many experts in the field of trauma care consider the first 60 minutes after an injury to be a so-called "golden hour" when trauma care is most effective in saving lives.
