Simulated Training at WA's Fiona Stanley Hospital
The $2billion Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) was brought to life for a few hours during a simulated helicopter crash on the hospital’s helipad.
Health Minister Kim Hames said it was important for the FSH team to test their emergency response plans to ensure that the hospital could respond effectively should an emergency incident occur.
“FSH is undertaking an extensive program of simulated scenarios to test the integration of services, flow of patients and key interfaces between clinicians, services, equipment, IT and the physical environment,” Dr Hames said.
The simulation saw internal and external services work together to test communications and co-operation between agencies during an extreme emergency scenario. More than 50 people, including doctors, nurses, firefighters, emergency specialists and test observers took part in the exercise with the shared aim of ensuring that all the mock casualties received emergency care while services at the hospital were maintained.
