KSU nursing students learn how to respond in a crisis

Local News

Kent State University nursing students were learning what to do in a crisis.

The KSU Trumbull Branch teamed up with Trumbull and Warren Health Departments to create an anthrax triage and treatment site.

Students took turns being the nurse and victim.

First, they filled out health records. Then, they learned about getting medicine.

The training taught the nursing students about the effectiveness of a disaster plan.

“It is a disease that has a high fatality rate, so we would have to respond quickly to the disease to provide post-exposure,” said Sandy Swann, of Trumbull County Combined Health District.

This is the third year that Kent State Trumbull has been doing the simulation.
