Description

Florida law requires emergency response teams to take critically injured trauma patients to the nearest trauma center. But a four-county region near the treasure coast in Florida does not have a trauma center. WPTV investigated emergency flight logs and found a pattern of middle steps and delays when dealing with trauma victims in this region.
