Simulation Lab Reservations
Simulation lab may be
reserved on an individual basis when not already requested by faculty for
classes. For assistance, please email lab personnel at (firstname.lastname@example.org/
NursingSim@just.edu.jo) or call (23662). Walk-ins are welcome and taken on a
first-come first serve basis and depends on room vacancy. There is a two-hour
time limit for students especially during busy times of the semester usually
from 2pm – 4 pm.
Students are encouraged to ask
questions. Lab personnel and faculty are available to help in the Open Practice
Lab. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance when needing additional supplies,
have questions on operation of equipment, or need guidance on learning a skill.
Lab personnel work closely with
course faculty to ensure the Open Practice Lab is available to meet student
needs. We are available to facilitate your learning but also encourage and
foster independence by expecting preparation for lab experiences.
Absences from your scheduled Simulation
Lab day are treated the same as an absence of a clinical day. Please refer to
your course syllabus for more information about absence policy
Care and Maintenance of Equipment and Supplies
Wear your name tag to lab.
Dress as you would for clinical
Always bring a stethoscope, pen light, etc.
Hair & jewelry should follow the JUST student clinical handbook guidelines
Always come prepared to perform skills
No food or drink at any time
No cell phones, pagers or other electronic devices are allowed in the Simulation Lab.
Properly dispose of used supplies, materials, and liquids (e.g., put used needles in sharps box when appropriate).
All used items that can be reused should be returned to the front table. Some items can be reused when appropriate (i.e., foley catheter kits and suction kits, syringes, gauze, dressing kits etc.). Pay attention to how certain items are packaged and re-package them in the same order for the next student/faculty to use. If you are unsure what to keep, ask faculty and lab assistant rather than throwing it away.
All mannequins need to be treated with the same respect as patients
Do not touch the computers used to run the mannequins
Students are not permitted to be left in the lab unsupervised and the scheduled Faculty/Instructor must be available throughout the teaching session.
Students are not permitted to use the simulation manikins without faculty or Simulation Lab personnel supervision.
Students will be held responsible for damage to the equipment as a result of not following Simulation Lab policies and procedures.
Simulation Lab students will be held responsible for damage to the equipment.
Students are not permitted in the computer control room and coordinator office.
Report any damage to equipment or operating problems to the lab staff.
Clean up and restore the area you are practicing in for use by the next student.
In each class, it would be helpful if faculty and 3-5 student volunteers would inspect the status of the lab and mannequins approximately at the end of the lab experience (we wish the lab and mannequins to be in the same state/manner they started, e.g., intact skin, clean areas).
Let faculty and lab personnel know when a lab is complete so we can properly lock-up, break down, or set up for another lab.
No equipment or supplies should leave the lab unless it is properly checked out.
All needles, medication kits, intravenous supplies, etc. may not leave the lab areas as a safety measure for our students. Please be careful to clean up your sharps practice area appropriately.
Students will likely be an observer of other students’ performance during the simulation exercises. Students will be held accountable for maintaining confidentiality regarding the performance of other students in the Sim lab.
Be careful with the mannequins. The following guidelines apply:
Mannequins should not be moved unless asked to do so.
Do not manipulate the mannequins or equipment if you have long fingernails that may damage fragile or delicate skin.
Do not drink or eat around the mannequins and other lab equipment.
Only use the specific lubricant for placing tubes in mannequins.
If you put anything on a manikin (tape, topical meds, etc.) clean off the manikin at the end of class.
Do not apply betadine, markers, pens, or other liquids or inks applied to the mannequins. If you accidently mark on mannequin, let lab assistant know as he/she can get it off if it is removed immediately.
If equipment or mannequins are not working properly, let faculty and lab assistant know as soon as possible.
Mannequins should be covered after use and left in the bed that they occupy.
Straighten the bed linens and if a manikin is in the bed side rails should be up.
25. Students must conduct themselves in
a professional and academic manner. Failure
to do so will result in dismissal from the Simulation Lab.
Absolutely no laughing. You must act as you would in a real hospital setting
No using excuses. Please refrain from saying "this does not look/feel real"
Adhere to your assigned role and practice within your scope
Treat your group, patients and instructors with respect and courtesy.
Behavior during simulation that is disruptive to the learning process is unacceptable.
