You are the director of the education department in a 40-bed, rural, critical access hospital. A simulation vendor has offered to give you a 5-year-old, used, high-fidelity manikin for staff development training purposes (cardiopulmonary resuscitation, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, annual skills updates). His only request is that all supplies used with the manikin and the maintenance contract be purchased through his company.

The hospital currently does not have the funds available to purchase a new manikin.
