Fire was broke out in one of the PAPRSB Institute of Health Sciences laboratory causing thick smoke engulf the room causing a panic situation to the students and staff. Some were managed to escape but unfortunately some were not and sustained fire related injuries. A quick action by the laboratory technician leads the evacuation. Soon followed by the arrival of the paramedic to give immediate treatment for the casualties and transport to the simulated emergency department further management at PAPRSB Institute of Health Sciences Simulation Center. This is just a scenario for a simulation drill.
The theme of Simulation Drill: Nurturing Readiness in Emergency Event is chosen for this year simulation activity. It aim to test the efficiency of fire Emergency Response Procedure of PAPRSB Institute of Health Sciences UBD and management of mass casualties. This is an opportunity for the students from various disciplines of the PAP Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Instutitue of Health Sciences, Universiti Brunei Darussalam and School of Health Sciences, Politeknik Brunei, staffs and those involve to experience the simulated exercise and nurture readiness for any emergency events.
This simulation is conducted in conjunction of Healthcare Simulation Week which is celebrated globally in September by healthcare simulation advocators and users. This event is organised by the simulation team of PAPRSB Institute of Health Sciences with the support from UBD’s Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Unit (OSHE) and Emergency Medical Ambulance Service, Ministry of Health. Their involvement is to ensure the realism of the simulation activity.
The PAP Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Science Simulation Center since it’s officiated on 26 June, 2014 has been actively involved in integrating the simulation-based learning into the modules offered to the undergraduate programmes of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing and Midwifery of UBD and also the Diploma programmes of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic of Politeknik Brunei. Simulation drill is one method of promoting Intra-Professional Education (IPE) for all the learners.Besides that, The PAP Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Science is also an International American Heart Association Training center to conduct training courses such as first aid, basic life support and advanced cardiac life support.
