After the CES University went into quarantine and its headquarters were closed, the institution has been reincorporating following all the required biosafety measures. Thanks to the authorization of the national government according to decree 749 of May 28, 2020, the activities in the more than 30 laboratories and simulation areas of the U headquarters have been resumed little by little since June 1.
The laboratories and simulation areas work from Monday to Saturday, governed by the “peak and faculty "established by the University. The hours of operation are from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm from Monday to Friday, from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, depending on the programming that is had with the faculties.
“In the laboratories we have 5 assistants who help with the support of these, 2 are in charge of the area of basic sciences and 3 of simulation. In addition, at the Sabaneta headquarters there are also laboratories operating, specifically at CECIF and the other spaces of its own such as the Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Laboratory ”,said Laura Victoria Ceballos Bonilla, head of laboratories at CES University.
The Links Newsletter spoke with María Paulina Soto Gómez, a student at the Faculty of Medicine, to tell us about her experience returning to the laboratories.
“I thank the University for the commitment it has made so that we can return to carry out our practices in the laboratory, at least in a career such as Medicine. What makes you good is practice because there you can apply all the knowledge, in addition the laboratory also manages to recreate situations that are most similar to reality, something that we could not have achieved from virtuality”, Said student Soto Gómez.
For the proper development of activities in the laboratory, the Occupational Health and Safety area approved the clothing that must be worn by students and teachers when using these spaces. This set consists of an antifluid gown, a cloth mask and depending on the activities to be carried out, you should also wear hats, gaiters and gloves.
In addition, the laboratories had their input capacity reduced to approximately 40%, for example, thePhysical Exam SpaceIt was originally for 24 people, now it is only for 12, so the attention days are being longer, to be able to guarantee that all students can receive their sessions of practical activities
