CBS Baltimore: MedStar Aiming to Improve Safety with New Training Center in Baltimore

MedStar Simulation Training & Education Lab’s (SiTEL) expanded Baltimore simulation center is bigger and more realistic than ever, giving clinical and non-clinical associates hands-on training without risking patient safety.

 “What we’re attempting to do is make a safer medical environment,” said John Yosaitis, MD, medical director at MedStar SiTEL.

The lab isn’t just for doctors and nurses. Everyone who has a role in caring for a patient, even those who clean the rooms, will have a chance to train throughout their careers. Training areas are built to mimic areas of the hospital and can be equipped to support future training modalities such as virtual reality.
