role I field hospital

A Role I Field Hospital is the first form of structured medical support found in the field aside where both primary health care and emergency treatment are administered. Level 1 facilities also typically perform sanitary and preventative dental hygiene treatments. While Role I hospitals should have the ability to ward approximately 5 patients a day, anything more than basic injuries will typically be evacuated to a Role II hospital.
