    Again, any trauma center is going to have a high mortality rate vs a non-trauma center. Common sense.

    Just a reflection, really, of WRAL's reporting. How many cases have we heard of WRAL reporting that someone had a POSITIVE outcome after being taken to WakeMed? There may be cases, but I would muse, five to one to the contrary.

    GulfWarVet-Of course. Any time someone is injured and taken to WakeDEAD, they die. Tragedy they had to be taken there.

    You obviously have no clue what a trauma center is. If you are a trauma, you are in need of specialized help. Sometimes people in this situation don't make it. WakeMed happens to be a great trauma center with alot of dedicated staff and specialists. WakeMed, and its people, save lives everyday. Get a LIFE and learn the facts before you bash the only accredited trauma center in Wake Co.

    WakeMed is the regional trauma center. The worst injuries go there and unfortunately, some die. If any other hospital was the trauma center the news would read the same.

    I have never heard anthing negative about Wake Med until now well nothing but billing issues. Johnston Memorial however, I have. I heard the changed from "Memorial" because it was too fitting. Now it's Johnston Health.
