If the state trauma triage protocols are amended to include criteria that do not appear in a region's protocols, such amendments will automatically be applied to the region's protocols until such time as the region amends their protocols, in accordance with section 4765.40 of the Revised Code.
If the composition of a region created under section 4765.05 of the Revised Code is amended and that region has regional triage protocols under division (B) of section 4765.40 of the Revised Code in effect, the regional triage protocols shall remain in effect for a period of six months after the effective date of the amendment for all areas within the region at the time of the amendment or until a new regional triage protocol is created and goes into effect, whichever period is shorter. If a new regional triage protocol is not created and in effect within six months of the effective date of the amendment, the areas within the region at the time of the amendment shall use the triage protocols created under division (A) of section 4765.40 of the Revised Code.
