|Description:||This 1981 photograph depicts a number of patient-isolation unit staff members as they were carrying out a practice run involving the placement of a virtual patient inside a Vicker’s Isolation Unit. You can see the “patient’s” head as she was lying supine inside the unit, atop a gurney. See PHIL 2554, for another image showing a virtual patient lying in the Vicker’s enclosure.|
The image was captured during a trial run of a patient taken from CDC to a nearby medical center. A doctor was administering care to the patient with supportive help from the Isolation Unit medical staff. See PHIL 14505 through 14529, for imagery documenting this practice emergent situational scenario.
