I'm the facility educator at a very large SNF. My corporation is pushing the limits of what we do clinically---TPN, NG tubes, IV push, inotropic meds.....

Making sure the staff is competent is a HUGE thing. My administrator is letting me buy a training manikin so we can all practice on IT as opposed to practicing on a human being.

Do any of you use them? Any favorites? The one I want has interchangeable male and female parts, an IV arm, capabilities to do tube feeds, ng tubes, ostomies of all sorts, wounds....
