The Institute for Patient Safety and Medical Simulation is a partnership between Baptist Health and Auburn University. The Institute's mission is to improve the quality of healthcare while reducing the likelihood of medical errors.
The 22,500 square-foot facility was conceived as a training center for new and experienced healthcare professionals. The training teaches physicians, experienced nurses, nursing students, residents, fellows, medical students, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, paramedics and other healthcare professionals through a unique combination of simulations training and an emphasis on SMART Training.
SMART Training promotes patient safety through the advancement of teamwork. It empowers team members to apply high-level communication skills and purpose-based decision making to yield the best outcomes for the patient.
This type of training truly impacts the care patients receive from Baptist Health employees. Patients and the community benefit greatly from having an institute of this nature in Montgomery. The technology being used and innovative processes being taught provide healthcare professionals with skills and knowledge that is unsurpassed.
