Every patient deserves a team of conscientious providers
watching out for them throughout their surgery.

We discovered a need in the health care industry for a service-oriented group with a central focus on customer service—customers being the patients, surgeons, and staff members we work with. Our goal is to foster the “team” aspect of the surgical team. You can come to one of our facilities and expect a level of anesthesia care comparable to anywhere in the world.

Our mission is excellence in customer service!

Anesthesia Simulation-Job Shadow Experience For Students

Anesthesia Simulation

West Idaho Anesthesia offers unique educational experience for local students. Shad Westover, West Idaho Anesthesia Simulation Team Program Director, has organized an anesthesia simulation and invited high school and college students from the area to participate in real life scenarios, demonstrating all types of anesthesia, including general and regional.

"We are thrilled to give local students this hands-on opportunity with realistic scenarios in order to help them utilize important patient safety and crisis management principles they would face in a realistic experience," said Shad Westover, CRNA (nurse anesthesiologist).

The program is designed to surpass the job shadow experience. Each session is limited to five to seven students who will follow a nurse anesthesiologist and a simulated patient throughout the perioperative process. It also includes a debriefing period when the students can ask questions regarding anesthesiology as a profession and receive information for future assistance along their career path.

"It is more important than ever right now to make sure we are keeping students interested in the healthcare field. This was a great opportunity for local students to see firsthand what it is like to work as a nurse anesthetist. So far we've held one simulation and every student expressed an increased desire to go into healthcare after the experience," said Westover.

High school or college students interested in health care as a profession: Please email westidahoanesthesia@gmail.com and we will get you booked for our next simulation experience.
