When would a clinician check the “Trauma” box on the ED’s?”
Clinicians are expected to check the "trauma" box whenever the client reports that he/or she has experienced it. It is a reminder for clinicians to assess for trauma because traditionally in our system it has been an under reported issue. A diagnosis of PTSD, victim of abuse, etc. is not required for the clinicians to check the box. Based on the client's history, a clinician should check trauma even though the client denies a traumatic event.
