OBJECTIVE: This study aims to discuss the effects of simulation training on improving the pre-examination, triage, prevention, and control of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), explain the psychological states of pre-examination and triage staff in general hospitals during the COVID-19 epidemic, and analyze relevant influencing factors. This study may serve as a reference of psychological consultation services to medical staff.
SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This study included 60 nurses assigned in the pre-examination department, fever clinics, and isolation wards of a general hospital from January 26th to February 1st, 2020. Before assuming the posts, the nurses received simulation training on the clinical reception of suspected patients with COVID-19. Operation skills of the nurses before and after the training were assessed.
RESULTS: The percent of passing significantly increased from 65% before the training to 98.33% after training (p<0.05). Training also significantly relieved the anxiety and depression of the nurses (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: Scenario-simulation training can increase the emergency abilities of pediatric nurses in the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic and relieve the anxiety of nurses.Free PDF Download
