A day in Penn Nursing's simulation lab

(04/01/14 7:55pm)

A patient comes in and complains of cold-like symptoms. Her past medical history includes an open reduction internal fixation of the right hip — more commonly known as a hip replacement. Her CO2 levels and her white blood cell count are both elevated, and her hemoglobin and platelet counts are normal. This is a typical scenario given to Penn students in simulation labs, a class that composes a core part of the School of Nursing's curriculum.
