Simple mistakes made by doctors and nurses result in numerous Ohio Medical Malpractice Claims each year. To help combat this problem, many major medical facilities across the state have invested in simulation programs that allow doctors to receive regular hands-on training and practice.
According to The Plain Dealer, three of these facilities were added at Ohio hospitals last year alone. In Akron, the nearly half million-dollar MetroHealth Medical Center and another training facility at the Austen BioInnovation Institute were both built in the last 12-months. The Cleveland Clinic also has implemented its own training center.
The programs offered by these Centers allow doctors and nurses to practice both new and old procedures in the hopes of eliminating mistakes through repetition. For instance, the Cleveland Clinic is equipped with a computerized mannequin who can simulate different reactions during procedures. The mannequin’s blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, and other vitals can be manipulated independently from a control board to create different medical problems for staff to solve. At another facility, staff members are able to practice preforming different procedures on pig organs.
Participants and experts alike agree these programs only improve the quality of care patients receive.
