Advanced Multipurpose Simulator to Save LivesProject led by Hocking Valley Community Hospital Foundation
About the project.
Due to the increased tourism in Hocking County, Hocking Valley Community Hospital treats patients from all counties in the state as well as patients who have presented from 48 of the 50 states. Training is needed for nurses, practitioners and providers, and many other clinicians to stay on top of much needed medical education, staying current with the many changing patient conditions who present to the hospital.
The Gaumard Advanced Multipurpose Patient Simulator for Health Care Education will assist in streamlining staff training real-life scenarios across the continuum of patient care. Simulations such as seizures, airway management, monitors, ventilation and chest compressions, defibrillation and so much more.
This training will affect every patient who comes through the doors. This project supports the final dollars needed to acquire the mannequin and begin life saving training.
FAO staff comments.
With tourism on the rise in Hocking County, local healthcare providers must keep up with the demand of more than just local clientele. In order to stay up to date on life saving treatment, new tools, like the advanced multipurpose simulator are needed. This project will help keep Hocking County locals and visitors safe for years to come.
