Radiology Technologists: Setting a New Standard of Care for Patients and Families
When I first started working at Cincinnati Children’s in the Radiology Department in March 2015, I remember feeling excited to be part of an organization with such a positive reputation. I was also a little anxious about starting a new job in a new city and working with pediatric patients and their families. Most of my experience in radiology had been with adult patients, so I knew I had a lot to learn. As with all new employees to Cincinnati Children’s, I’ve been through many orientations, various trainings and have been provided with lots of on-the-job experience.
My first-day jitters were quickly calmed by the smiles and welcomes from the team of radiology technologists that I work with every day. With every interaction, I see the technologists providing the highest level of professionalism to achieve quality imaging while genuinely caring for you and your child. Our technologists do a great job of really listening to patients and families, striving to understand and show compassion in even hectic situations. From my own professional point of view, I can’t imagine a better group of people to work with. The technologists go so far above and beyond with the care they provide that they set the rest of us up for success.
I have worked with some very good technologists in the past, but after being at Cincinnati Children’s and working with this group, a new standard of care has been set! I am proud to say that I am a part of this team and I am excited to celebrate National Radiologic Technology Week with them!
