A U.S. Army nurse from Madigan Army Medical Center communicates with a simulated patient during Operation Alaska Shield near McChord flight line April 1, 2014. This exercise simulated a 9.2 earthquake similar to the one that struck Anchorage, Alaska, March 27, 1964. Throughout the process, from loading the patients at the scene of the disaster to offloading them at the point of disembark, patient communication was necessary. "If I don't communicate with my patients, their outcomes could be worse. If I don't tell them what's going on, what to expect and how we're trying to help them, they're going to be more anxious and it actually gets in the way of healing," said Iraq veteran Capt. Rebecca Lee of MAMC. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Chris McCullough)
