The 8,000-square-foot simulation center at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and Advocate Children’s Hospital–Park Ridge (Ill.) includes programming for environmental services teams, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
The programming is broken into two parts to focus on both technical and soft skills.
One part of the program focuses on room-cleaning procedures. Environmental services staffers learn various approaches, such as the tag-team method.
In the second part, staff clean an occupied room while conversing with the patient.
