Health Sciences Academy Gets a Glimpse of Life in the ER

Health Sciences Academy Gets a Glimpse of Life in the ER

Students in the Pre-Professional Health Sciences class were invited by Jennifer Irvin, Health Educator, BJC School Outreach and Youth Development, to tour the Barnes Jewish Hospital Campus. They were able to see the main pharmacy that supplies the hospital with medications, and learn how the medications travel from the pharmacy to the patient floors.

Students were then given a behind the scenes tour of the pediatric Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital. During the tour, students learned about trauma, teamwork, communication, and the hi-tech equipment used to treat pediatric patients.

After a visit to the Family Resource Center, which aids families in researching illnesses or developmental stages, the students headed to “Big Barnes” emergency department. Students were welcomed by the Clinical Nurse Educator, Nora where the PPHSA students were able to watch first responders arriving in the ambulance bay and learn about mass disaster planning and precautions at the hospital.

At the end of our visit, students and instructors were able to observe an outgoing flight from the helipad.
