:: Prisoner’s scan September 12, 2007

trackback

Every so often we get patients from prisons coming for a scan. The patient would be accompanied by 3 prison guards (PG) and so far, from my observation.. were big burly, fit men. Not too old, not too young. Just enough experience and stamina to chase The Fugitive should the situation arise.
The patient would be handcuffed to PG A, whilst PG B and PG C register the patients detail at the front  desk. Later, PG B and PG C will be brought to the scanning room by the radiographer in charge, so as they could locate and secure possible exits – back door, half-opened windows etc.

After ensuring that everything is safe, all of them will wait in a designated room. Away from the public, probably to reduce unnecessary anxiety. Once the patients turn is up, he will then be escorted to the changing room – to be clothed in a suitable garment for scanning. The patient would have to dress with the doors open, so that the PG’s could see what he is up to.

One of the PG’s would then accompany the patient in the scanning room himself – for as long as it takes. It is vital to checklist these PG’s for certain things like if they’re wearing pacemakers (if they’re escorting into an MRI scan) to prevent occupational hazard.

So far , there haven’t been any misbehaving patients in my hospital. Which is good because on all these occasions that I’ve witnessed, I’m just sat a few steps away and I don’t think I’d like to have an unexpected blade-under-skin sort of thing near my carotid artery. Scoffield included!😛

what a wonderful experience lah minci. guard yg baek2? hurm… my dad slalu jgak temankan org salah gi wat medical checkup. biasanya bila orang salah tu nak kena masuk penjara pusat (bukan lokap), so kena wat full medical checkup. ayah saya mmg frenly je orgnye. hehe..
tapi ade satu kes bawak mat rempit gi hospital lepas cedera parah naek eksiden moto sblum kena tangkap dan ditahan bawak dadah, doc pulak yg memilih nak jadi kejam. jahit mentah2 je..
ayah saya ckp “kesian plak tengok..”

Oh ye, pasal tattoo.. some of tattoo has sort of metal in its ingredients. sbb tu la ade problem ngan MRI.

adiratna,
ahaha..pastinya ko akn digosipkan oleh awek2 MR tuh over cups and cups of coffee.. ” hari nih kan.. ada ke sorang patient tuh boleh tido bla bla bla”.. ha ha..padan!!

amirah,
you r so right.. some tatoo’s do have a bit of metal in it. I would think that was an inappropriate conduct of the doc to do that..

shutterspeaks,
ikut hati nk jugak kan.. tapi kang guard2 tuh halau aku plak.. :p

ennosuke-chan,
I really liked the part when he gave Sarah the paper rose. yg tinggal atas meja tuh
