Abstract Trauma is the leading cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality in the United States. There are known gaps in access to pediatric trauma care and rehabilitation services. We postulate that aftercare is fragmented or nonexistent. We propose that postdischarge "medical home" style care, championed by a pediatric nurse practitioner, leads to improved short-term outcomes and caretaker and provider satisfaction.
