St. Luke's 2nd-grade students create decorations for our upcoming Christmas Under the Oaks event! Creating paper snowflakes is a cherished tradition that results in beautiful decorations and is a fantastic STEM(M) activity for students. By engaging in this activity, students can express their artistic abilities while practicing their design skills through writing and folding.
Just a few outtakes from the USA Mass Casualty Drill that our students were "actors/victims" in (see previous post.) We are so thankful for this partnership & our students look forward to this event each year!
What a great experience for our students! St. Luke’s Biomedical Sciences students had the privilege of being the "victims" (actors) in the University of South Alabama Mass Casualty Drill. After studying their assigned injuries, learning how to respond, and applying moulage to make their wounds appear real, our students looked and acted like they were in an actual gas explosion at a concession stand in the Hancock Whitney Stadium.
The mass casualty drill was a well-scripted scenario that was as close to a real-life emergency as possible to allow students to experience chaos in a real-world setting. As soon as the explosion occurred, screams, moans, and cries for help were heard as the healthcare students attended to the “patients” in real-time. Once the “patients” were examined at the scene, they were transferred to a hospital-like setting.
This drill allows the healthcare students to utilize what they have learned in the classroom and receive feedback from their professors. It also provided our students with an invaluable opportunity. SSt. Luke's Biomedical Sciences Program
Captain Julie Darling, whom some of our students met on the USNS Comfort Hospital Ship, and Corpmen recently came to St. Luke’s to talk to our Biomedical Sciences students about their medical specialties within the Navy.
The Honor Walk for JT Smith will be today. His surgery for organ donation will be conducted at USA University Hospital.
