UMMC invited the public into the ICU unit today to see a new patient simulator that will be used to help train hospital staff.
The $60,000 machine is a gift from CHART, the hospital’s insurance carrier. It provides a realistic representation of various medical conditions so medical personnel can practice everything from inserting an IV to performing defibrillation.
