Sponsor Your ERLEARN HOW TO SPONSOR YOUR ER
Do you know if your closest ER is prepared for pediatric emergencies? Through R Baby’s Sponsor Your ER program, you can help make sure your ER is ready when your child — or any child in your community — needs it most.
Sponsor Your ER is a unique partnership between parents, local ERs and top Children’s Hospitals to help communities raise targeted funds to bring R Baby’s mobile simulator training to their local community hospital.
This mobile simulator training program, directed by top pediatric experts, brings dynamic parent actors and lifelike infant simulation mannequins to your local ER to assess how your ER manages different emergency situations your child may face. R Baby’s Sponsor Your ER program makes it easy for you to help make sure your nearby ER receives this critical training.
The Rohan Family
The Rohan family of Connecticut sponsored their ER. Thanks to their generosity and sponsorship of Stamford Hospital, over the past year ImPACTS simulation training has:
- conducted 24 simulations with the Stamford ED staff;
- trained 200 medical professionals and provided approximately 200 hours of provider training;
- focused on high-stakes and low frequency conditions including but not limited to cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, septic shock, trauma, cardiac disease and metabolic disease;
- worked to improve the “system” of care by guiding Stamford on the reorganization of their pediatric equipment and provided access to equipment;
- created future collaboration with Stamford respiratory staff for a hospital wide conference for all of their staff that has traditionally not involved pediatric topics.
How It Works
- Sponsor Your ER by raising $5,000 to $20,000, which can bring specific levels of training to your local community ER — one to four times a year.
- Pediatric experts will travel to your ER to assess how it manages a variety of pediatric emergency situations.
- After assessment, experts will provide critical and specific pediatric training to your ER on a quarterly or monthly basis, depending on the ER’s needs.
- The program uses simulation for training and to test the environment and equipment of each department, working with the department to address any deficiencies in care.
- The training program and systems testing can also be conducted at schools, primary care offices, urgent care clinics and others who care for children in the local community to help prepare those on the front lines of emergency situations.
