Wartburg Establishes an Advanced Simulation Learning Lab

Wartburg Establishes an Advanced Simulation Learning Lab for Nurse Education in Skilled Nursing Facility Thanks to the Generous Support of The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation

Wartburg, a premier senior care and housing provider in Mount Vernon, is pleased to announce the opening of its Advanced Simulation Lab (ASL). This innovative teaching lab enables its care staff to practice and improve their clinical and critical thinking skills in a hands-on environment. The lab is equipped with technologically advanced mannequins, wound care models, simulated “real life” equipment for IV, tracheotomy and catheter insertion, and a patient lift for safe transport. This state-of-the-art educational facility was made possible by a $25,000 grant from The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation. Wartburg is one of the first in the area to offer this type of on-site training for nursing staff, furthering the commitment of the organization to provide top-quality care for its residents and the community.

Ms. Ress conceived the idea of the Advanced Simulation Lab as part of her Action Learning Project while a fellow in the LeadingAge National Leadership Academy. Recognizing the need to care for more acutely ill patients, her goal was to provide her nursing staff with the skills necessary to consistently deliver quality outcomes for patients across Wartburg’s continuum of care. – Wartburg
