    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

ICU Simulation Lab

Last Thursday and Friday the 2nd year DPT students and the post bach nursing students worked in collaboration during an ICU simulation lab. Below are the objectives from the simulation lab:

  1. Students will communicate effectively and respectfully during the simulation lab
  2. Students will collaborate to safely mobilize the simulation patient from bed to chair and back to bed during the simulation lab
  3. Students will reflect on individual and team performance and recognize improvement strategies
  4. Students will discuss importance of teamwork in patient centered care
  5. Students will recognize roles and responsibilities of other care providers

During the simulation lab groups of nursing and PT students worked with a $65,000 simulation patient in the make-shift ICU lab.  PT is performed a follow up visit with the medical doctor indicating patient was ok for out of bed activity.  The goal was to effectively work with nursing students to mobilize this patient in a bed to chair transfer activity.

The lab was a really neat opportunity to get some interprofessional collaboration and work on our individual skills, all while under a little bit of the added stress/pressure of a “real patient”. The “sim man” is hooked up to multiple monitors, tubes, mechanical ventilation, lines, and IV’s and can “crash”, show facial expressions, have coughing/choking issues with intubation, etc., making the scenarios quite realistic.

Here at CSS the professional programs do a great job at getting us ready for our clinical rotations, as well as the real world working environment. It is activities like this that we are fortunate to have in our professional programs at the College of St. Scholastica.
