CBS 3 covers student journalists’ field trip

May 2017…Healthy NewsWorks student reporters recently had the opportunity to get up close and personal with an electronic mannequin (or high fidelity simulator) called SimMan at the Simulation Center at Einstein, located on the campus of Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.  The simulated environments such as an intensive care unit, a surgical suite, an obstetrics delivery area, and a typical patient room allow students an opportunity to practice clinical and teamwork skills.

The director and the manager of the Simulation Center showed the Healthy NewsWorks journalists how SimMan had a pulse, breathed, blinked, and more. CBS 3 Philly health reporter Stephanie Stahl reported on their experience, and you can see and read the story here.
