Cape Coral Hospital is home to a new neonatal simulation lab located inside the birthing suites.
The lab will be used for training medical professionals on how to prepare for neonatal emergencies.
The Golisano NICU simulation team oversaw the setup of the lab. The team consisted of NICU nurses and a neonatologist who dedicated time to the simulation of newborn situations. This can lead to improved outcomes for the baby.
The lab features state-of-the-art equipment which provides feedback to the team during the resuscitation.
