Learners will arrive and partake in a welcome activity. They will begin in the blood product small skills session and demonstrate how to set up the blood product as well as verbalize understanding of the protocol. The next skills session will allow the learner to demonstrate proper placement of the electrodes and use of the MP5.
In the chest tube small session, the learner will demonstrate how to change the atrium and verbalize the assessment needs of a patient with a chest tube. In the next skills session, the learner will verbalize the interventions used to prevent CAUTIs as well as technique for proper Foley placement. Next, the learner will complete the simulation regarding respiratory distress and demonstrate their ability to complete a thorough respiratory assessment based on the cues of the patient.
While interacting with the patient, the learner will anticipate the patient needs and communicate that with the physician using SBAR. Immediately following, the learners will be debriefed. The next simulation will be pancreatitis where the learner will demonstrate the ability to educate the patient on the disease process of pancreatitis and pain management. The learner will assess the CIWA score of the patient by vitals, anxiety, and behavior of the patient. Next, will be another skills session where the learners will have multiple “pieces” of patient information and will need to work together to form a diagnosis and care plan.
The next skills session will allow the learners to set up a PCA and demonstrate how to prime the tubing with the pump. In the skills session about central line care, the learners will demonstrate accessing a mediport and verbalize what to assess for on a central line dressing. The learners will attend the discussion about the procedure for enteral feedings and the difference between a G-tube and a J-tube.
Next will be another simulation utilizing a code blue scenario. The learners will demonstrate the ability to recognize a change in the patient status, initiate a code blue, and demonstrate the use of the AED. Immediately following simulation, the learners will be debriefed. The day will end with an evaluations and the opportunity for questions.
