State of the science hospital furnishings (beds, headwalls, nurse stations and call systems) and equipment (Pyxis™ medication and supply stations with supporting inventory system software, Alaris™ IV pumps, ventilators, a large inventory of task trainers and devices to aide in patient positioning and transfer) support the Smart Hospital’s mission by providing a real-hospital learning environment.  Advanced virtual simulation applications are ready for the students’ hands-on skills practices in our multi-station computer lab.
