Monongahela Valley Hospital Opens Simulation Center

Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) is taking continuing education to a higher level with the opening of its new Simulation Education Center. Located on the fourth floor of the hospital, the Center features manikins, jointed models of the human body used for medical training, which can replicate a variety of patient symptoms and conditions. The realistic manikin’s digital screen eyes can blink, droop, become bloodshot or jaundice. The manikins are physiologically based and can respond automatically to treatments and simulate critical interventions such as mechanical ventilator management.

“The Simulation Center enables Monongahela Valley Hospital to develop meaningful learning experiences for students as well as advanced-degree nurses that will enhance patient safety,” said Mary Lou Murt, MVH’s senior vice president and chief nursing officer. “The technology allows us to create medical scenarios that will increase self-confidence and competence in critical thinking, clinical decision making and skill development among our medical teams.”
