Detroit Life is Valuable Everyday (DLIVE) - Detroit Medical Center – Sinai-Grace Hospital

Detroit Medical Center – Sinai-Grace Hospital | Detroit, MI

Detroit Life is Valuable Everyday (DLIVE) was created to address a significant medical issue in its community: Homicide is the number one cause of death for Detroit residents ages 15 to 34, and violent injury recurrence rates have been reported to be as high as 30 to 45 percent at several trauma centers. The first paper looking at recurrent injury rates actually came out of Detroit’s trauma centers in the 1980s; the paper found recurrent injury rates – termed as trauma recidivism – to be 44 percent and mortality rates to be 20 percent. Additionally, statistics show that once someone has been treated for an assault injury, they will often suffer a repeat injury within two years.
