The American College of Surgeons applauds the California State Legislature and Governor Gavin Newsom for enacting Assembly Bill 2260, “Emergency Response: Trauma Kits.”
The ACS Quality Verification Program (ACS QVP) has recognized its inaugural 25 verified hospitals during the 2022 ACS Quality and Safety Conference. ACS QVP gives hospitals the guidance, tools, and structures to improve surgical care, operational efficiency, and overall performance by empowering hospitals to implement improvement plans to address their specific needs.
The ACS voiced its support for the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (S. 2938), introduced in the Senate earlier this week. The legislation presents several actionable and common-sense measures for reducing death and disability caused by firearm violence, which is now a national public health crisis.
