Greetings and thank you for checking out Steps Insitu!
My name is Jason Burgess, and I am the founder of Steps Insitu. I have been a Registered Nurse working in neonatology for over 20 years and have been teaching the Neonatal Resuscitation Program for the last 4 years. My love for simulation and the potential it can have to provide a safe area to learn without the risk of becoming the secondary victim of a medical error inspired me to create this product.
The belief that we can learn from our mistakes starts way back when we were toddlers and continues throughout life, allowing us to grow as humans. As young children our parents would warn us to be careful when riding our bikes or not to touch something because it was hot, but it was not until we fell off our bikes for being careless or burned our hands on something that we truly learned the lessons taught.
However, in the medical world we cannot just “learn from our mistakes” as this can cost lives. With Steps Insitu I created an application to run simulated cases in various environments such as the delivery room, or emergency room allow the team the freedom to react to the situation in their own departments and a program which could mimic the responses to any action performed.
A fully featured application with scalable difficulty levels to challenge even the most experienced teams and recorded debriefings to review how the scenario plays out. I truly am excited for what the future has to offer for Steps Insitu, as this is only the beginning of my journey to reduce medical errors in health care settings.
