Pros: experience, great benefits, fun co-workers
A typical work day in DCH radiology Department is clocking in on evening shift and heading to the desk/file room to see what awaits. The shift begins by answering the phones for transferring to the modality of request such as CT, US, NM, MRI and Angio. What you learn from the day is patients and time management, Communicating with the Radiologist, prioritizing reports for the ED or faxing reports to the doctor's office on request. What you see are the transporters picking up and dropping off patients for the ordered exam in which we get off the printer for diagnostic exams or one that the other modalities have sent for. My co-workers are what makes the shift fly by fast. The team work and effort that is placed in doing and wanting to get the job complete. I would not trade the work effort for anything in the world. The hardest part of job is seeing our patients come down sick and have to watch them be put through our exams. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to leave work know that our department performed in a productive manner to assure all exams that were ordered for the day were completed and possibly saved someones life.
