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 a physician at Rush for over 20 years, and above all I think my patients know they can trust me. We have a relationship of mutual respect. They know they can expect me to actively listen whether they have a small problem or larger issues. And they know that I’ll give them advice that’s recent and up-to-date, and they’re counting on me for that information so that they can make appropriate decisions about their health.
