Manchester, KY – Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH) successfully hosted its annual SCRUBS Camp last week. The Camp, led by MMH Community Outreach Coordinator Jeremy Hacker, is open to high school students hoping to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.
This camp outlines various aspects of healthcare for the students, and provides them with hands-on experience, with lessons planned and taught by practicing physicians and providers.
This year, camp goers were able to experience the entire casting process from beginning (setting) to end (removing) with our Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Giriraj Gupta. Next, they were taught how to suture wounds by Dr. Angela Rice, who practices at Family Medical Care of Clay County. To cap off a wonderful learning spell, students were made to actually put on scrubs and were given a tour of an operating room (OR) at MMH by Michael Stimson, Nurse Manager for the OR and Emergency Department.
