Hi NerdyNurse Readers! Please allow me to introduce myself as Lance Baily, founder of the free simulation resource website HealthySimulation.com, and The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists non-profit organization at SimGHOSTS.Org. As you may know, healthcare simulation technology continues to grow into nursing schools and medical centers around the world. For these fully immersive scenarios, realistic full-bodied manikins are controlled behind a two-way mirrors which allow technicians to pre-program or change vital signs “on the fly”. Also behind this mirror is a clinical educator who speaks as the voice of the patient while learners begin to assess the scene and take actions. The entire event is usually being digitally recorded and displayed to another debrief room, which can also show performance analysis indicators. After the scenario concludes, the educator and learner return to the debrief and review the footage, discussing the event in a constructive non-personal way. As you can imagine, between manikin robots, camera hardware, endless microphones, analysis software, server storage racks, and miles of cable – the technology can become overwhelming quite quickly.
As you may already know, Google had a recent campaign to select the initial purchases of Google Glass. Interested parties could tweet or compose a Google + message indicating what they would do #IfIHadGlass. If they were selected as a “winner” they would have the opportunity to purchase Google Glass at $1,500, and agree to pick them up in New York, Sacramento, or Los Angeles a year before the public.
When you think of a shield it can have a number of different adjectives behind it. There is the wooden shield broken shield, spiky shield, big shield, small shield, and so on. You basically get the picture that any number of shields can come to mind. However, my favorite type of shield, and the best one I have ever come across has to be the invisibleSHIELD from ZAGG.
The Fellowes 73Ci delivers the power and functions we need in order to keep protected health information private. In addition to the fact that it is fast and cuts up to 12 pages at once, it can also handle CDs and Credit Cards. CDs may sound like a little bit of over-kills but in healthcare the CD thing is actually pretty relevant. We often give CDs to patients with their health information on them. If we happen to have one lying around then it’s best it be shredded least it wind up in the trash by mistake.
