The facility houses seven mock patient rooms with adult and
pediatric human patient simulators, two birthing simulators and
and three infant simulators. We also have a home visit room. We also work with live patient actors that add reality to our simulation scenarios.
There is a nursing station that is fully equipped to allow
real life scenarios and allow practice of team skills. The
facility is fully integrated with audio/visual equipment to
allow digital recording of simulations for debriefing and future
review and refinement.
There is a control center which overlooks the main simulation
center. Up to 4 areas can be controlled
at one time making it possible to run multiple scenarios simultaneously.
There are two conference rooms with full visual capabilities that
allow non-participants to view scenarios and critique participants.
The conference rooms can accommodate up to 20 people.
a family of high fidelity simulators with lifelike capabilities. The simulators are listed to the left in the sidebar. We have simulators from the main simulator manufacturing companies.
the high tech
on our high fidelity
have several low fidelity mannequins to assist training needs.
Task Trainers: CPR mannequins, airway heads and IV arms area available for task training.
Medications, IV supplies and other equipment:
The center is equipped with (mock) medications, IV supplies
and other equipment such as chest tubes, crash carts and other
items that make simulations real! Please be sure you request
the equipment necessary to accomplish your learning goals. If you have specialized equipment needs, please check to make sure the items are available.
If you plan to use the med-dispense system or EMR workspaces, schedule an orientation to the equipment and software.
Enloe Medical Center provides the necessary physical space
to house the simulation center. The Enloe Medical Center's Cohasset
campus is an ideal site. This location has easy freeway access
and ample parking to accommodate individuals and groups wishing
to utilize the facility.
The simulation space
is ideal because it is a 4000 square foot former hospital
space which includes 2 medical-surgical hospital patient rooms, an operating/trauma room, pre-op/post op area, a neonatal intensive care space and a delivery room.
Our space also includes a nursing station,
a media operation center and 2 conference rooms or debriefing
areas that can be used simultaneously as well as equipment storage space. We also have a computer lab that can be used by reservation.
Enloe Medical Center currently provides round the clock campus security. The Simulation Center
has the same security as the overall hospital plant. Computer
equipment that is required to operate the hi-fidelity patient
simulators is secured with security cables and locked patient
rooms. Video surveillance is present 24 hours a day.
