National Statistics Online (2005) note that the number of death certificates mentioning Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) infection increased each year from 1993 to 2005 in England and Wales. This increase in infection rates highlights the importance of encouraging greater education concerning washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand rub. This paper reflects on the creative process, production and pilot of a web based reusable learning object created for educating students concerning the virtual care intervention of one patient being nursed in isolation for possible Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The simulation intends to describe standard precautions required for a patient being nursed in isolation for MRSA, identify the roles and responsibilities of the health care team in relation to an infection control issue, discuss the importance of communication in relation to infection control and discuss the impact on communication when a patient is nursed in isolation. The paper discusses the thinking behind using simulation within the health education curriculum and considers the challenges involved with taking the simulation from initial concept to pilot.
