The radiology staff was very nice and taught me well. the hospital overall was good.
A typical day at work consisted of clocking in, retreiving patient requisitions, cleaning and preparing the room for patients, filling gel bottles, retreiving patient history, signs, and symptoms, transporting patients from designated areas to ultrasound department, filling out diagnostic worksheets for the radiologist, and documenting exams in a log. I learned new techniques from both department employees and management. I also learned how to assist in procedures such as paracentesis, thoracentesis, biopsies, and needle locazaliczations. The hardest part of the job was trying to utilize my time with the patients as efficiently as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with patients and being able help them.
