2 Making equipment more user friendly. Enhancing Reality using a low or mid-level fidelity manikins

3 Why the need for more efficiency? 3 Large scale nursing skills labs w/ 10 beds & ICU simulation Lab 3 Large scale nursing skills labs w/ 10 beds & ICU simulation Lab Del Mar currently has over 500 nursing students. All are in one or more courses requiring a skills lab component. Del Mar currently has over 500 nursing students. All are in one or more courses requiring a skills lab component. Over labs per week = >150 labs/semester Over labs per week = >150 labs/semester Every student – every level has to do a final simulation before moving ahead in the program Every student – every level has to do a final simulation before moving ahead in the program

4 Utilizing our space better Glove box holds the vital sim box perfectly Glove box holds the vital sim box perfectly Make sure bed positioned in such a way as to not displace when raised up or down Make sure bed positioned in such a way as to not displace when raised up or down. Our bedside cabinet was just not accommodating Our bedside cabinet was just not accommodating all the equipment It just seemed cluttered. Solution was easy and cost effective
