Summary

A multi-floor, virtual hospital, VCE 2.0: Canyon View Regional Medical Center contains 14 patient rooms with five floors--a Well Child Clinic, a Pediatrics Floor, a Surgery Department, an Intensive Care Unit, and a Medical-Surgical Telemetry Floor. These patients are included in VCE 2.0: Canyon View Regional Medical Center:

  • Darlene Martin Ms. Martin, age 49, was admitted with uterine leiomyomata, irregular periods, and endometrial hyperplasia. She opts for a total abdominal hysterectomy.
  • James Franklin Mr. Franklin, age 67, admitted after experiencing episodic light-headedness, left arm and left leg numbness, and one episode of expressive aphasia. He undergoes a carotid endarterectomy.
  • James Story Mr. Story, age 42, has renal failure and Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. He arrives complaining of significant weakness, nausea, and an increasingly edematous right arm.
  • Paul Jungerson Mr. Jungerson, age 61, complains of persistent left lower quadrant abdominal pain that has lasted for 3 days. Diagnosed with a coloanal anastomosis disruption, he undergoes a colostomy.
  • Elizabeth Washington Ms. Washington, age 63, is admitted following an automobile accident which fractures her hip.
  • Tom Handy Mr. Handy, age 62, is admitted for a right upper lobectomy with bronchoscopy for moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the right lung.
  • Julia Parker Ms. Parker, age 55, is admitted with indigestion and mid back pain. She suffers a myocardial infarction.

Key Features

  • Includes a guided tutorial which shows students how to work with a patient in the virtual hospital, collect patient data from various sources (reports, charts, medication administration record, short video clips and audio clips of nurse-patient interactions), record patient data, listen to a report and itemize a patient's problems and high-priority concerns, and sometimes administer medications.
  • Requires students to use their critical thinking skills to set priorities for care, collect data, analyze and interpret data, and reach conclusions about complex problems within a health-illness transition.
  • Encourages active learning and provides opportunities to identify information to collect and process data for evidence-based patient care; work with data entry and retrieval screens; optimize use of available information resources; understand hospital information systems; manage information for decision-making; and maintain and improve core computing skills.
