Clarendon Health System teams up with Palmetto Health to offer training in OB/Neonatal emergencies


Manning, SC (PRESS RELEASE) –  Medical professionals at Clarendon Health System in Manning will have the opportunity Thursday, August 20 for a hands-on learning experience through simCoach, a fully equipped mobile training center, complete with realistic mom and newborn simulators used for training in OB/Neonatal emergencies.

Staff members of Palmetto Health/USC School of Medicine in Columbia will provide the training to OB/GYN doctors, pediatricians, midwives, family medicine physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists starting at 8:00am.   The training is part of the South Carolina Birth Outcomes Initiative and is supported by SC Department of Health and Human Services’ Healthy Connections program.

“This is a fantastic learning opportunity for our staff because of the live simulations offered.   They will have to react in real-time to obstetrical and neonatal emergencies aimed at reducing the risk of non-medically necessary caesarean births and improving perinatal outcomes.  Our CHS team is committed to providing excellent care and welcome this phenomenal learning opportunity that simCoach simulations will provide,” said Debi Love-Fralix, Director of Women’s and Infants Services at Clarendon Health System.
