Trauma Transport Protocols & Inter-facility Transport Guidelines
Trauma Transport Protocols (TTP) describe the procedures used by the emergency medical services prehospital provider for dispatch of vehicles, assessment of the extent and severity of injuries of trauma patients and determination of the destination (facility) to which trauma alert patients are transported. TTP's are a legal document that should outline, as accurately as possible, the actual procedures followed by the emergency medical service provider, written within the context of section 395.4045, Florida Statutes and Chapter 64J-2, Florida Administrative Code.
When to Submit TTP's:
The approval period for TTPs is the same as the EMS provider's two-year licensure period, unless revisions are made to department approved TTPs during that period.
