The Birthing Center has an Obstetric Clinical Educator. This
Educator's responsibility is to provide the Obstetrical Staff with
educational and training opportunities in order to keep their clinical
knowledge and skills current. This includes staff to be certified
in CPR, Neonatal Resuscitation, and S.T.A.B.L.E. (an advanced training
in immediate assessment, care, and treatment of the newborn).
The S.T.A.B.L.E. course is an advanced course to prepare the staff
in the stabilization and care of sick infants. This stands for S.
SUGAR and SAFE CARE, T. TEMPERATURE, A. AIRWAY, B. BLOOD PRESSURE,
L. LAB WORK, AND E. EMOTIONAL SUPPORT.
We are very proud to say the some of our Registered Nurses are Nationally
Certified in Newborn Nursing or Inpatient Obstetrics. This certification
acknowledges expertise and dedication in their professional field.
The Birthing Center offers many continuing educational opportunities
for our staff. We provide the staff with skills fairs, computer educational
series, perinatal outreach reviews and in-services, educational opportunities
offered by our regional transport center, and updated articles offered
by a highly recognized obstetrical service.
Why would Sturgis Hospital Birthing Center put so much time and energy
into all aspects of education? Quality care is a partnership which
involves the patient and their health care provider. Our partnership
together will help us to fulfill our Unit's Mission, Vision, and Value.
We thank you for being in this partnership with us.
