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.
My philosophy to patient care is being proactive rather than retroactive. I think with all the resources that we have today, with all the amazing research that’s been done, things should be diagnosed really early and treated early.
At Rush we are blessed with working with physicians who are pioneers in their field and who are the best at what they do. And I feel very blessed that I can pick up a phone and call a physician, and ask him a question and get back to the patient.
I feel like when my patients come and see me it’s basically like seeing a family member.
