Medical Assistant Lab
The medical assistant lab includes two patient beds that mimic a doctor's office setting, an autoclave for proper sterilization of equipment, a centrifuge to work with fluid samples, a reception area, prosthetic arms to learn blood draws, and drawers and cupboards full of instruments and equipment that will be used to learn how to set up and do all kinds of procedures and tests. There is also a child and infant "dummy" to practice on.
The nursing skills lab includes hospital beds, wall consoles with mock oxygen adapters, ambulatory devices, scale, and mannequins (both low- and mid-fidelity). The lab also contains two high fidelity simulators and an audio-visual system to assist students in the developing and testing of skills. Approximately 8-10 students can work in the lab at once. The lab gives students hands-on training prior to moving on to clinical settings.
