This simulation suite is a dual-purpose simulation laboratory/procedure room modeled after an actual ICU bed space. Its location within the Medical-Surgical ICU ensures that participating staff can focus on their skill development with minimal interruption to their work schedule.
The room is fully equipped with all the necessary medical equipment, as well as multiple gas outlets and several patient simulators. The variety of simulators allows for an extensive range of clinical scenarios ranging from neonatology to adolescence. The Sim Suite is monitored via closed-circuit television and all relevant audio/visual information is sent to an adjacent control room where it is recorded and stored. From this control room the Sim Specialist is able to control the patient simulator, communicate with the clinical facilitator on headset, and send a range of video, presentations, lab results, x-rays, etc. to an LCD screen within the sim suite.
