Rules and Statutes

The Injury Prevention Service was created in 1987 with a federal grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Commissioner of Health declared hospitalized and fatal burns, drowning/near drowning, and spinal cord injuries as reportable conditions for special study, and the Injury Prevention Service began statewide surveillance for those conditions that year. Since then, the injury surveillance system has expanded to include traumatic brain injuries, work-related deaths, traffic-related deaths, and violent deaths (homicide, suicide, etc.).

In accordance with 63 O.S. Section 1-114.3(B) and OAC Section 310:515-1-9, the Oklahoma State Department of Health Injury Prevention Service supports this registry to collect information on all assaults on medical care providers. Every hospital, health clinic, and ambulance service must complete the Medical Professional Assault Registry for every assault on a medical professional.
