Trauma-response training event a success; photos included
Penn State Mont Alto and the Waynesboro Advanced Life Support Service partnered to provide a trauma-scenario training exercise for their student on April 29 at Penn State Mont Alto. The Penn State Hershey LifeLion helicopter, Blue Ridge Summit Rescue, Mont Alto EMS, the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry Lifelion, Franklin County EMA and the Mont Alto Fire Department assisted in the exercise.
Penn State Mont Alto’s freshman forest technology students, associate degree (RN) nursing students, and RN-to-BS nursing students were afforded hands-on training responding to a trauma scenario in the woods adjacent to the campus as well as how it is to work with a trauma patient in a simulated Emergency Department. In addition, Penn State Mont Alto’s nursing faculty facilitated the use of iStan in the exercise; he is the department’s mobile human simulation patient. iStan was treated from “injuries” by forestry, nursing and paramedic students.
