Fort Belvoir Community Hospital is looking for 50 more volunteers to be fake patients during an exercise.

The goal of the Day in the Life exercises is to test patient safety, evaluate processes and indentify any issues requiring resolution before day one.

FBCH needs volunteers ages 20 to 90. Individuals can be active duty, retirees, civilians, friends and family.

Day in the Life exercises will occur Thursday Aug. 18.

Volunteers may go home after their scenario is complete. Each scenario will end intermittently throughout the day. The mock scenarios will test systems at the new hospital and involve most departments at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.

No clinical procedures will be performed on volunteers.

Breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase.

If interested in volunteering please provide your first name, last name, email address, age, sex and dates in which you are able to volunteer to Debra Spivey at
