The training was conducted by Loren Nix from the Georgia Partnership for Telehealth. The session was very informative, and covered all of the basic instructions on how to operate the equipment.
School Nurses from all of the Decatur County Schools participated in the training session. The equipment includes a laptop work station, web cam, Horus Scope (for monitoring and viewing eyes, ears, nose, and throat), and blue tooth enabled Stethoscope.
Training will be held next week at Memorial Pediatrics and Amelia Medical Plaza. This is the next step in the process of opening the telehealth based school clinics at Jones Wheat and West Bainbridge Elementary Schools.
