Postpartum Hemorrhage Education Class | March 10, 2021

OB nurses at Myrtue Medical Center use hands-on simulation training in the Birthing Center to become more prepared for OB and newborn emergencies. Their lifelike childbirth simulator, a manikin named Victoria, is a programmable software system that can simulate a full range of OB events.

Michele Monson, RNC-OB, Birthing Center Director exclaims, “Our high-fidelity manikin has been a great tool for our staff to use at unit meetings and go through different situations to practice teamwork and critical thinking skills.”

On March 10, 2021, the nursing team used Victoria and practiced the situation of a patient suffering from a Postpartum Hemorrhage after giving birth. A Postpartum Hemorrhage is defined as a cumulative blood loss of greater than or equal to 1,000 mL or blood loss accompanied by signs or symptoms of hypovolemia within 24 hours after the birth process. The team had to work together to figure out the best way to take care of the patient and the situation in the safest way possible.

“I believe educating the Birthing Center nurses is one of my most important jobs. I need to assure each nurse has the knowledge to do her job well,” Monson expresses when speaking to the reasons why she brings in multiple continuous education opportunities to the Birthing Center.

Every medical education class that is performed within our facility is dedicated to improving the delivery of safe, effective and efficient healthcare close to home.
