Disaster Training at Hodges University

by The 100 Companies

It’s one thing to learn in the classroom and simulator labs. It’s another when you’re put in a scenario involving lots of sensory input, including the Hodges University ambulance with sirens blaring, lights flashing, confusion and victims in a disaster.

Our nursing and EMT students worked together under stressful circumstances to respond to the disaster scene to triage, treat and transport victims (aka fellow physical therapy assistant students, faculty and staff) to the ER nursing suite.

Once there, they continued assessments and treatments of their “patients.” Our students applied what they learn in a scenario made as real-life as possible.
