At Texas Children’s Hospital, in addition to the care and safety of our patients, we also view the safety of everyone visiting and working in our hospital to be a top priority. That’s why before opening outpatient services at the Pavilion for Women, we conducted realistic, emergency response simulation sessions to give our team valuable hands-on response experience in our new facility.
Simulation is a methodology that can not only be used for educating and training, but also for testing new patient care environments, equipment and processes. In situ simulation is a simulation that is physically integrated into a real clinical environment and provides a method for identifying possible safety hazards in high-risk areas and help our staff prepare for various types of emergency situations that may arise in a hospital setting. It enables the team to identify the resources, systems and design adaptations of the new facility that impact a timely response Full Entry
