LUTHERAN TAKES THE OPERATING ROOM TO AREA SCHOOLS
"OR to the Schools" gives kids a glimpse into hospital professions

February 12, 2009, Brooklyn, New York…In October, Lutheran Medical Center introduced OR to the Schools, a program designed to provide students at area schools exposure to operating room professions and procedures through role play, resulting in a hands-on and fun-filled learning experience.

The most recent OR to the School was held at P.S. 172, where Jose Hernandez, M.S., R.N., VP surgical services, guided children through a mock surgery and explained the different aspects of an operating room.

During the session, students gained first-hand knowledge and experience of operating room processes as well as job functions of key operating team professionals. The program also educates children on the rewards of a professional career in health care.

Students who "performed" surgeries were equipped with disposable scrubs, masks, face shields and shoe booties.
