This morning were getting an inside look at the emergency department at Memorial Hospital.
They're conducting a real-time emergency drill with a very realistic computerized mannequin. The hospital says the mannequin breathes, has a blood pressure and can demonstrate other bodily functions. It will be treated by a team of physicians and nurses as if it were a real trauma patient.
Memorial is conducting the exercise to improve quality of care. Heading to Memorial now, more to come later.
