On the day of simulation, we would plan to arrive at your facility between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. with a start time between 8:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Each scenario lasts between 5-15 minutes and is followed by a debriefing session. The total time of each session usually lasts 2½ to 3 hours.
There are some housekeeping issues that we have learned are some of the most difficult issues hospitals face with setting up these simulation sessions and want to ensure you are aware of ahead of time:
Following our simulation day, we will analyze the data obtained and format it into a report out to send to you. It will include any deficiencies found on the National EMSC survey, objective data as to your team’s performance (we do not include any team members by name…this is an assessment of your institution, not your staff) and areas where there may be opportunities for improvement, as well as any additional issues that may be voiced during our simulations. We will follow up with a phone call to discuss the report out with you and implementation strategies we can assist you with to improve pediatric care at your institution.
