Abstract:

Session presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013

he Simulated Hospital Day (SHD) has been created to meet the ever growing educational needs of healthcare students and address the challenges that faculty have with traditional simulation.  During the four hour simulation, nursing students (25) provide all the care and skills for the live “patient” in real time.  “Patients” (25 nursing students) are provided with scripts via a laptop computer that adjust every 30 minutes.  The “patient” scores the healthcare providers on their quality of care and answers NCLEX style questions on an hourly basis.

A key component of the SHD is interprofessional collaboration among the following disciplines: nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, social work, nurse practitioners, clinical lab, physical therapy assistants and medical technicians.  This interprofessional team must address patient needs,  and communicate with the patient and other team members to determine the most appropriate plan of care for each patient.

Student healthcare providers must maintain professional behavior while prioritizing multiple tasks, critically assessing patient’s status, and providing safe competent care while dealing with normal hospital distractions.  The SHD is conducted 15 times a semester prior to clinical placement.  This provides faculty the unprecedented opportunity to directly monitor and supervise five students simultaneously in a simulated hospital unit environment.  Clinical faculty are thus able to observe what students can do safely and competently while determining areas in which they need additional training prior to working in actual hospital settings.

Community partners also “Give Back” in the SHD, sharing their experience and skills with students.    These licensed partners are nurses, respiratory therapists, speech language pathologists, and physicians from local hospitals.

The SHD has improved the performance of our students in the clinical setting.  It has proven to be a more cost effective form of simulation and reduced student down time associated with other forms of simulation.
