Taking age into account when it comes to care
For instance, Fairfield University's School of Nursing recently acquired some new simulation dummies and other devices for its PRACTICE Geriatric Nursing Simulated Clinic, with a $233,153 grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. The dummies can be programmed to evidence signs and symptoms of conditions associated with aging, such as Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson's disease and others. On a recent day, students came in to "find" a 90-year-old woman with pneumonia and flu symptoms, said Suzanne Campbell, School of Nursing associate dean for academics programs. "We can make them breathe. We can adjust their heart rates. We can even make them sweat," Suzanne Campbell said. "And the students know nothing until they walk in the classroom, just as it would be in real life."
