DianeW88 Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 I was at our University Hospital to pick up some test results for the MD I work for (enough to keep my license current) and stopped by to see my friends in the U/S department. My one friend was lamenting her afternoon because had three sc*tum scans on her schedule. And since this is a university hospital (hence public), one of them was a "prison scr*tum". :ack2: She said you'd be surprised how many of those they have to do in a week, and that with women and a pelvic U/S, a chaperone needs to be in the room if the tech is male, but with male patients and a woman tech, no chaperone is there (well, except if the guy is a prisoner...then there are two guards). She also said that for some strange reason when men drop their pants, they drop the filter in their brain as well, and she gets REALLY tired of the borderline inappropriate chatter (she attributes it to their anxiety, but nevertheless...). She also tells me that type of scanning IS required in U/S tech training, so if you are not interested in scanning that part of the male anatomy on a regular basis, this might not be the job for you. :lol: I left with a newfound respect for U/S techs and a deep gratitude that I went into pediatrics. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
