Bayonne High School students visit JCMC EMS


BAYONNE — Twenty-seven students from the Bayonne High School Academy for Health and Medical Sciences visited Jersey City Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, to get an up close and personal look at the hospital’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS). During their visit, the students learned about the hospital’s distinguished 130-year history of EMS, received a walking tour of an ambulance, got a demonstration on mechanical CPR, and visited HUDCEN (the hospital’s 9-1-1 EMS dispatch center). Michael Prilutsky, JCMC’s Chief Operating Officer, met with students and discussed future careers in healthcare.
Students said they were particularly impressed by the high level of technology being used to deliver emergency medical services to the community, including predictive modeling to respond to emergency calls and the LUCAS robotic device for giving CPR.
