Disaster drill trained nursing students to triage in emergencies

Organized by the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and GSW graduate student Laci Martin, the March 28 disaster drill held on campus allowed 67 nursing students to practice responding to potential disasters.

The drill involved a simulated car crash with numerous “victims” with varying degrees of injury. Students arrived on the scene, assessed the injuries, and triages patients based on their status. EMT students from South Georgia Technical College played the “victims” and were “moulaged” with fake injuries by Department of Public Health Nurses from Albany.

First responders from the Americus Fire Department & Emergency Services worked closely with the students during the drill, providing guidance on working the scene and treating patients.

The drill also made use of the Carter I nursing building. Students in the lobby learned how to put patients on backboards, and others on the second floor worked in a hospital simulation.

Numerous other local agencies were also on hand for the event, including GSW Campus Safety, Sumter County Emergency Management, the Air Evac Lifeteam based at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, and Magnolia Manor.
