College of DuPage
Hospital Simulation Lab | Glen Ellyn, Illinois
Renovation of a lab and storage room into a Hospital Simulation Lab allows nursing students to experience realistic patient care scenarios. The lab includes a nurse’s station, four hospital rooms, and two viewing rooms. Also, procedures can be videotaped and reviewed in a debriefing room.
Each of the four hospital rooms contains a computerized mannequin, with one room dedicated as a birthing suite. The viewing rooms sit between two hospital rooms and consist of one-way glass.
