As a nurse or medical assistant in a doctor's office, you may be asked to perform pre-surgery skin preparation. This module provides a detailed overview of how to perform skin preparation for minor surgical procedures. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two scenarios that test your ability to prepare for and perform skin preparation for minor surgical procedures: the removal of a mole, and a laceration that requires suturing. In the simulations you assist the physician by preparing the room and equipment, cleansing scrub, draping, and painting the site with antiseptic, ready for the surgical procedure. Practice the steps of the procedures as often as you want until you are confident.
