Hi all, yesterday my instructor did something very interesting and wanted to know if anyone in their geriatrics semester experienced something like this. It is not a complaint mind you, but wondering if this was just a case of it being my instructor, and this particular college. Yesterday after we returned from our break, we entered the classroom and there were candles lined up all along the chalkboard ledge glowing. There was also a Coleman lantern on the podium also. When roll was called by a different instructor we knew something was strange. After roll call, in came my instructor wheeling in a gurney with a wrapped/shrouded head to toe dummy with toe tag attached. We are currently studying the death/dying and bereavement segment. The usually noisy class was silenced. All the lights were off except for the glow of the candles. My instructor introduced herself as the nurse who was providing patient care for Mr. Doe at end stage of life with her lantern glowing on her face as she read the prepared dialog. It was riviting. The effect was powerful. What she was saying and describing coroborated with all our reading material in a "visual" way. Really would like to know if any other students have had an experience like this in geriatrics class.
