Diagnostic Imaging provides investigative or diagnostic tests and some therapeutic procedures. Investigative or diagnostic tests are performed to assist the patient’s physician in diagnosing or ruling out the presence of disease. In all cases, some form of energy is applied to the patient resulting in the production of an “image” (or picture) that is reviewed or “read” by a Radiologist. The Radiologist uses their extensive medical expertise to render their impression of what they “see” on an image or series of images. This impression or “report” is then used by the patient’s physician to administer treatment. Generally, therapeutic procedures will only be performed following the completion of one or a series of investigate or diagnostic tests.
Equipment: Ceiling Mounted Patient Lift
SHN is in need of a new Ceiling-Mounted Patient Lift. Patient lifts are important aids that are used for lifts and transfers, designed to mitigate the risk of injury caused by manually transferring and moving patients while providing the most comfort to the patient. The lift is an essential tool that has the flexibility and versatility to support a patient’s unique needs, and allows transport to a medical imaging procedure to be completed as efficiently as possible.
