Just a few updates on the happenings of the Radiology Department....
Today is the 6th day of the Twelve Days of Christmas, and the treats have been wonderful so far. Thanks to all those who volunteered to bring the yummy Christmas goodies.
The new lockers, located in the control room, are ready and available for your purse/fanny pack holding pleasure. Please remember that they are to be used for the day only. Subsequently, the linen cart has been moved across the hall in the alcove next to the scheduling office.
The all-lock release button in the ER Rad room has been sticking, so the tube floats when it is in place. Therefore, it is taped onto the wall by the console. We believe Walter has already informed GE of this problem. If you know that it hasn't been reported, please take the necessary steps to rectify the unfortunate situation.
Our latest addition to the department is the new computer in the ER Rad room! This will help when you need to change an order quickly before the radiologists read it. Please remember: log off of tandem to protect patient confidentiality, and NO surfing for websites that will get you a RED WALL!!!Some other reminders:
*Please only scan one document and write the other accession numbers and number of films turned in on one paper when paxing multiple exams
*There will be no department meeting for the month of December due to the department party
*Do not forget the department Christmas party on December 20th at 6:30 at Stoneridge Clubhouse. There are maps printed on the birthday bulletin board if you would like a copy. Don't forget to bring the food if you have signed up--there are still available options if you would like to help contribute. Also, bring a white elephant gift for a FUN exchange! (Yes Keith, you can bring the blow-up doll!)
*Remember--the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!
We would like to thank everyone who has helped decorate our department, especially Shaun, our personal interior designer. It looks fabulous and has helped us all get into the holiday spirit!
