SLVH OB Labor Simulation Training a Success

San Luis Valley Health Labor and Delivery at the Regional Medical Center in Alamosa successfully trained over 25 employees during a hands-on learning opportunity training on August 31, 2021. 

Valerie Beascochea APRN, NNP-BC, and her team came to the SLVH RMC facility from Colorado Springs and assisted with simulation training for the team members made up of OB nurses, ED nurses, Respiratory Therapists, EMT’s, Paramedics, OB providers, and pediatricians.

This event provided staff hands-on opportunities to practice skills learned in the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) to maintain resuscitation skills of infants during the time of delivery and immediately afterward. The focus was to encourage teamwork, communication, and increase confidence in staff and providers. This event was geared to assist all members of the team to become better prepared in responding to neonatal emergencies; regardless if they occur in the facility or out in the field.
The turnout and staff involvement was outstanding.
