Delivering Newborns: Stillwater Medical Center invests in care

Susan Jones, RN, interim manager staff educator for Stillwater Medical Center uses new mannequin equipment to train labor and delivery nurses how to best respond to emergency situations when delivering infants.

Birth can be such a vulnerable time. Stillwater Medical Center has new mannequin equipment for its nursing staff to train on for normal and more difficult birthing experiences, said Susan Jones, RN, interim manager staff educator for Stillwater Medical Center. Jones is also a neonatal resuscitation provider who teaches a class on the subject annually.
“It makes them better prepared to handle those emergencies,” Jones said.
The Stillwater Medical Foundation provided funds to purchase a maternal mannequin, Victoria, and baby Super Tory for simulating emergency and normal birth training opportunities.
