The Gurney Room started life in a hospital basement as a mail center. When the mail center left, it was repurposed for equipment storage. Over the years, it housed countless gurneys awaiting cleaning in order to serve the next patient. Also in that hospital basement, and another gurney room of sorts, is our emergency department. All of its gurneys are also cleaned and prepared in the gurney room. We began using the space to teach and learn to better care for our patients, and this website and our instagram feed are the product. The Gurney Room is now our part-time laboratory for just-in-time training and deliberate practice.
Our website and instagram editors are Deena Bengiamin, Liz Fierro and Tim Young, three southern California emergency physicians. Deena completed a fellowship in medical education, and Liz and Tim are fellowship-trained in pediatric emergency medicine.
We aim to teach and learn using digital modalities in order to provide patients with the best care possible.
