COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College's nursing students found out Tuesday afternoon what it would be like to deal with the aftermath if a tornado ripped through the college's A.P. White Campus.

The students participated in a mini-mock disaster that was staged in the amphitheater between the Jim and Helen Fugitte Science Center and the Dr. Robert and Carol Goodin Nursing & Counseling Center.


For the disaster, students had to deal with the impact of a tornado, which included more than a dozen casualties scattered in the amphitheater. LWC nursing students worked with area first responders to assess the victims and then administer treatment. Some patients were taken into the simulation lab of the Goodin Nursing & Counseling Center, which had been transformed into a hospital emergency room.

The mini-mock disaster, which is part of the curriculum in LWC's baccalaureate nursing program, included a special guest this year -- Henry Baughman, who is a legend among Kentucky emergency medical technologists.

A retired Western Kentucky University professor who taught health and safety, Baughman helped start WKU's emergency medical technologist/training program, and he also shaped some of Kentucky's regulations for emergency technologists.

The mini-mock disaster exercise followed the annual Dr. Henry Baughman Visiting Fellows Program Lecture, which was given by Susan Taylor, a nursing professor at West Kentucky Community & Technical College also member of the school's disaster simulation faculty.

The Baughman Visiting Fellows Program annually invites a scholar in the field of health, safety and wellness to give a public talk and meet with LWC students. Modeled on the prestigious Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program, the Baughman Visiting Fellows Program enlightens area residents and LWC students about critical life issues. The program is named in honor Baughman. LWC's tennis center is also named in honor of Baughman, who is a member of the Kentucky Tennis Hall of Fame.
