TriStar Skyline trauma center fails first-year test


A new trauma unit at TriStar Skyline Medical Center failed to get past its one-year provisional status because of “several deficiencies” — including treating brain injuries.

The Tennessee Board of Licensing Health Care Facilities has given the hospital a second chance, extending the provisional status for a year. But the hospital must first submit a corrective action plan within two months of the board’s May 6 decision.
