Patient Simulators Help Save LivesThe new Rush Clinical Skills and Simulation Center uses sophisticated dummies to simulate real-world patient care — from serious heart conditions to the flu — for students and health care workers from Rush University Medical Center.
I’ve been around long enough now that a lot of my families are on their second or third or fourth child, which is fun because then I get to see them when they’re first born and I see them now when they’re 5 or 6 or 7. You get to know them all as a family.
I don’t think anyone likes to see kids sick, especially the parents. So I think the best you can do is really explain to the parents what the course will be, what to expect in the next few days or the next few weeks. And then let them know that if they ever get worried just to call back or to come back and we’re always around.
