McLeod Organizational Learning has opened a new Simulation Lab in the McLeod Training Center on the campus of McLeod Regional Medical Center. This new area provides hands-on simulation training for new and current licensed and unlicensed staff including nurses, technicians, medical residents, pharmacy residents, medical assistants, respiratory therapy staff and HeartReach staff. The new simulation manikin is programmed by McLeod Nurse Educators Danielle Cooper and Brittany McNair who can create just about any type of medical scenario experienced on a hospital floor. Orientation evaluation feedback received by McLeod Organizational Learning from staff indicated a need for more life-like tools, simulation and less lecture time. Currently, McLeod is the only hospital in the area with this state-of-the-art technology for employee education.
