Disaster preparation

SAMC recently conducted an external disaster drill which simulated a collision between a church DIsasterDrill310x153 bus and a tractor-trailer. These disaster drill help the Medical Center to be prepared in the event of a large scale incident in the community. Twenty simulated victims (all SAMC volunteers) were transported, triaged and treated in the Emergency Department. Above, SAMC emergency physician Scott Everett, MD, and Levonne Outlaw, RN, triage simulated patients as they arrive at the ED.

Female science students tour SAMC

More than 25 girls from grades 6 - 11 who are interested in math and science visited SAMC this 0100CathLabMarkGreeneQueensOfScience310x153 week as part of program funded by Troy-Dothan. The girls spent one day at ACOM and one day at the Medical Center. They toured the Cath Lab, Imaging, Family Birth and Pharmacy. They had lunch and listened to clinical experts talk about how math and science is used in their jobs. In the photo, Mark Greene, a cardiac radiographer in the cath lab, explains how a heart catheter works to one of the tour groups.
