The Simulation Centre consists of two nursing bays designed to emulate current NHS specifications.
The Nursing Bays provide students with a valuable insight into working in an authentic hospital setting.
The two ward areas at the Centre, Bays 1 and 2, are separated by a preparation area and a sluice room. Bay One has an additional nurses station with an ‘L-shapes’ counter to create a realistic working environment for all health professionals.
Both wards are fully equipped with the facilities you would expect to see in a working hospital with drugs trolleys, crash trolley and four Huntleigh beds in each bay. The Nursing Bays have four ArjoHuntleigh beds in each bay. The Nursing Bays have a mix of four CAE wireless iStan manikins, 2 Gaumard S2000 Susies, 2 Laerdal MegaCode Kellys, 2 Sakura Patient Care Simulators and several Laerdal Nursing Annes, manikins, to help developed each student’s clinical skills.
There is a variety of infusion pumps available such as Gemstar, Graseby and Alaris, plus several Dinamaps. An array of manual handling equipment is available such as several types of Arjo Hoists (Opera, Trixie Lift and Sara 3000s). The two ward areas are separated by a preparation area and a sluice room. Bay One has a nurses station with an ‘L-shapes’ counter.
