Description

The HealthCare Simulation South Carolina (HCSSC) set of Vital Signs Assessment for Nursing scenarios is designed to provide formative and summative assessment with structured feedback for nursing students learning to take, measure, and assess vitals signs. These scenarios, along with the Vital Signs Measurement for Healthcare Professionals scenarios, may be used with the HCSSC online course, Vital Signs Assessment for Nursing.

The HCSSC Vital Signs Assessment for Nursing scenario set* includes 23 scenarios divided into three components:

1.   Vital Signs Procedural Steps (1 scenario)
2.   Vital Signs Measurement Scenarios (4 multi-case scenarios)
3.   Vital Signs Assessment Scenarios (18 scenarios grouped into three sections, A1-A6, B1- B6, and C1- C6.

Each vital signs assessment scenario presents a case with historical vital signs data. The participant must not only obtain the correct vital signs measurement, but also determine the appropriate initial nursing actions based on the findings.

All of the scenarios in the Vital Signs Assessment for Nursing set have been developed for several of the Laerdal software platforms. Each version of the scenario takes full advantage of Laerdal programming capabilities. As a result, the scenarios are easily run from a well-structured menu. Debriefing logs include color-coded check marks to provide easy-to follow, objective-based debriefing guides. In addition, multimedia is embedded throughout the scenarios to provide enhanced fidelity or “just-in-time” participant feedback. The Vital Signs Procedural scenario automatically grades, with the debrief log displaying the number and percentage of correct steps completed.

*All scenarios in this set can be found in SimStore. HCSSC scenarios are programmed to support proven methods for objective-based feedback and Practical Simulation. For more information about HCSSC scenarios and courses, and how to achieve Practical Simulation visit the HCSSC website at www.healthcaresimulationsc.com/simstore.

Note: The Vital Signs Procedural Steps and Vital Signs Measurement Scenarios are also licensed as a set, Vital Signs Measurement for Healthcare Professionals.
