Basic Guidelines for Simulation
Treat the environment and simulator as real. Call the simulated client by name; perform as you would in an actual environment.As a practice environment, errors are expected; however, risky behavior toward the simulated patient, students, or others, whether the behavior is real or simulated, is not allowed.
Treat information about the simulated client as with a real client. Be aware of HIPAA laws; practice confidentiality.
Do not discuss or share information about the performance of classmates in simulation. This is a safe learning environment.
Dress appropriately for patient care; bring stethoscope and supplies.
Do not bring food or drink into the simulated environment.
Turn off cell phones and other ringing devices.
Bring resources, including I-phones and I-pads with appropriate applications, such as medical and drug references.
