HOPEWELL, Va. (WRIC) — With nations around the world facing a rising need for more ventilators due to the coronavirus outbreak, health facilities in Virginia are trying to prepare for a shortage.

Bryant & Stratton Richmond Campus is lending their nursing program ventilator that they typically use for simulation courses to John Randolph Medical Center (JRMC) — and they hand-delivered it to the hospital on Tuesday.

Ventilators are machines used by hospitals to provide mechanical breathing to patients who struggle to do it on their own — critical in times of respiratory diseases like COVID-19.

Michele Richardson, the Nursing Clinical Coordinator at Bryant & Stratton College, said machines like this are vital in a crisis. The college staff is choosing to lend the equipment to JRMC to pay them back for hosting ‘clinicals’ for their students.
