I broke my leg! or not…

May 12, 2010 —

Last Friday my class had the opportunity to participate in a casting lab put on by a few of our faculty and some local healthcare providers. Let’s just say we had a blast…as I am sure you can see from the pictures.

We learned how to splint both the arm and leg, as well as how to make a arm cast. Not only did we learn how to make a cast but we also learned how to use the saw and cut them off. I was pretty nervous at first but was a pro in no time. This is just another thing I love about this school—all the opportunities provided to us before we go out on rotations to fully prepare us.

Just thought you all would enjoy the pictures. Have a great week!


Daley Dodd was born and raised in the little ol’ town of Newton, IA. Growing up involved sports, dance, clubs and anything under the sun that could keep the family busy. This busy bee life flowed over into her college years at Northwest Missouri State University. She was a member of the Northwest Dance team, taught dance at a local studio, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority and involved in Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC). After college Daley journeyed on over to Europe and had the time of her life. While there she worked for CCC and got to experience new cultures, foods and people. After a year abroad her cravings for American food got the best of her and she came home. After living in Nebraska a year she decided to jump back on the school ship and came to DMU. She has loved her experience here so far and can’t wait for everything to come.

    Those are the happiest looking people in casts ever, haha! The saw part must have been a bit scary.

    That was a great opportunity for all of you to be a part of the lab. The training provided to all of you will prove to be useful in future. These are some of the basic first aid given to a patient after an accident. You all might face such situations in a playground or in the dance class. So keep all these useful tips in mind. Bye.
