About Surrey Memorial Hospital
Surrey Memorial Hospital’s greatly expanded Emergency Department is scheduled to open in 2013 and the Critical Care Tower in 2014.
One of the expansion projects included the new simulation lab and baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at SMH. Staff can practice their skills before they face a real baby. Representing a full-term newborn, the new sim doll can simulate a variety of conditions and regular baby movements and sounds such as breathing, heartbeats and even seizures. Since the doll can simulate real-life situations, staff can learn to respond effectively if the same situation were to occur to a real newborn.
