This initiative aims to bolster nursing education and training by providing nurses with an advanced platform to enhance their skills and proficiency in various nursing procedures. 

Bengaluru-based Sakra World Hospital has unveiled its latest addition to healthcare training with the inauguration of a Nursing Simulator ‘Anne’ in the Nursing Simulation Lab. 

With this launch, Sakra Hospital became Bengaluru's first standalone corporate hospital to adopt this advanced technology.

Simulation training aims to provide nurses with a safe environment to learn from mistakes without compromising patient safety. This approach further seeks to enhance nursing education, ensuring healthcare professionals are prepared to deliver effective care.

Regarding the initiative, Lovekesh Phasu, group COO, Sakra World Hospital, Bengaluru, said, "Our initiative aims to catalyze transformative developments in healthcare." 

He stressed the significance of progressing nursing technology, highlighting that by equipping nurses with a comprehensive understanding of diseases and the necessary steps forward, they pave the way for enhanced patient outcomes.

About Anne

Anne offers a learning experience by providing nurses with a safe environment to practice a wide range of nursing skills. 

It is designed to meet the highest standards of realism and safety, providing nurses with a platform to hone their skills in various nursing procedures.

Anne replicates genuine patient responses with features such as spontaneous breathing and blinking eyes, allowing nurses to sharpen their critical thinking and refine clinical procedures. 

This immersive training approach ensures that nurses are well-prepared to handle real-life healthcare situations accurately and proficiently.

Speaking about the significance of simulation training, group COO Phasu highlighted its role in providing a safe environment for learners to make mistakes and learn from them. 

He emphasized that incorporating simulators into nursing education helps ensure healthcare professionals are well-equipped to provide safe and effective care to actual patients.

Sakra’s Expansion Plans

Founded in 2014, Sakra World Hospital is a leading healthcare institution in Bengaluru. Established through a collaboration between Toyota Tsusho and Secom Hospitals, Sakra is now gearing up for further expansion. Their latest endeavor involves launching a 500-bed unit in Banaswadi, North Bengaluru. 

Notably, in March this year, Toyota Tsusho and Secom invested INR 1,000 Cr to establish this new Sakra World Hospital branch.

Furthermore, Sakra World Hospital introduced synthetic tissue grafts for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction during knee replacement surgery. Referred to as the ‘Artificial Ligament,’ this technique offers several advantages, particularly for patients with inadequate natural graft quality. By leveraging synthetic tissue grafts, surgeons can potentially enhance surgical outcomes and expedite recovery for individuals with ACL injuries.
