Moscow, ID – Gritman Medical Center, Moscow Fire and Ambulance, and representatives from the Idaho Simulation Network will conduct an inter-agency drill, 10:45 a.m.-noon on November 6. The scenario will address a staged emergency response for one child and one adult victim of gunshots as a result of a domestic dispute.
The staged victims will be treated at the scene and then transported to Gritman Medical Center’s Emergency Department, where nurses and physicians will provide care in preparation for transportation via MedStar air ambulance.
Using high fidelity manikins, which incorporate the latest computer technology to simulate realistic full-body patients, the drill will help emergency personnel and staff practice for a real-life emergency.
