Simulation Training Lab tour and demonstrations

Simulation technology offers home health care nurses the most advanced training available, allowing them to provide the highest level of quality care to adults and children with complex medical needs.

The Simulation Training Lab tour will include demonstrations of the state-of-the-art, high-fidelity adult and pediatric mannequins that feature life-like anatomy, make realistic sounds, and offer clinical functionality. The Simulation Training Lab allows nurses to:

  • Provide interventions for a multitude of symptoms in a controlled environment
  • Experience hands-on trach and vent care and management
  • Demonstrate competency in an emergency situation


Nurses are invited to free continuing education programs

Simulation Training Lab FAQs

What is clinical simulation-based training?

Through software, instructors generate realistic patient emergency scenarios on state-of-the-art pediatric and adult mannequins that present symptoms and prompt an assessment and intervention by a nurse. The software logs the nurse’s actions and response times, and a web camera captures audio and video.

Why use simulation?

Repetitive practice in emergency scenarios presented in a safe, controlled environment builds the confidence and skills necessary to work one-on-one with a patient with complex needs. The software objectively measures actions, reactions, and response times that, combined with instructor-observed feedback, creates an ideal learning experience for nurses.

Why is this important for BAYADA home health care professionals?

Home health care professionals work one-on-one with patients in the home setting, so training and support are critical. BAYADA Home Health Care is leading the way in offering this training that is typically only available in a hospital setting. Nurses from a hospital setting can also learn how to work with pediatric and adult patients in a home setting.

What are the features of the state-of-the-art mannequins used in the lab?

The mannequins allow observation of changes in respiration, circulation, and color. Features include:

    Life-like anatomy

  • Simulated breathing with variable breathing patterns, including retractions
  • Bilateral carotid, brachial, and radial pulses that operate continuously
  • Color and vital signs that respond to interventions and changes in oxygen levels
  • Eyes that open and close with programmable blink rate, pupil size, and pupillary response to light

  • Realistic sounds

  • Crying, coughing, and hiccup sounds
  • Heart sounds that include normal heart rate and murmurs
  • Respiratory sounds that include normal lung sounds as well as crackles and wheezing

  • Clinical functionality

  • Seizures on command
  • IV training arms to practice the insertion of tubes
  • Shoulders and thighs with intramuscular injection sites
  • Functional tracheostomy and ventilator simulation
