The Simulation Lab at Cheyenne Regional utilizes high-fidelity manikins to create real, life-like scenarios for your medical training events.
Reasons To Use Simulation
- Simulation training creates a safe learning environment both technically and interpersonally. Making mistakes can be a valuable part of the learning process, and in the simulation environment, patients and staff are not put at risk.
- The simulation lab can provide adult, pediatric and infant simulation experiences.
- Training healthcare providers to be able to respond to any situation they might find themselves in is crucial to their development as healthcare professionals.
Things to Consider when Scheduling a Simulation
- Space is determined and prioritized based on simulation needs as well as submission request dates.
- The lab consists of two spaces: a debriefing room and a simulation lab. Spaces will not be separate unless specified in request.
- All simulations will require planning meetings and a simulation run-through prior to the live simulation.
- The time frame required for planning is determined by the type of simulation, manikin availability and the complexity of programming. The average time frame for preparation is three months.
- A simulation agreement must be signed by the manager of the department before planning can be initiated.
- The simulation form is for use by those requesting to utilize the high fidelity simulation lab and training center. Please submit your request a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your requested date of training, to allow for build time and preparation.
- If equipment is not available, the requesting department is responsible for providing required equipment.
- The simulation lab is not responsible for the transportation of equipment between buildings.
- All supplies that are used must be cleaned and returned to proper locations within the lab.
