Travel Sonographers Take The High Road

 Being a traveling sonographer is not for everyone.  You may elect to take long or short term assignments and have the flexibility to take time off when you want to .  I have completed two travel positions for hospitals, this by far does not make me an expert on travel sonography I just wanted to share my…

Where Did All The Transporter’s Go!?

Does anyone remember when you had a transporter to go get your patient’s from the floor and bring them down and take them back? What happened to them? Why now are we expected to take a handful of patient orders and an ultrasound machine that weighs a ton and is hard to push and manipulate, only…

Where Did All The Money Go?

If you’re a sonographer working on old aged ultrasound equipment and listening to Doctor’s day in and day out complain about what they are reading, then you know what I mean when I say “where does all the money go.” It’s not in the budget this year but maybe next year. I think most will…

“No Offense”

    Have you noticed how easily offended our society has become? It’s embarrassing really. Seemingly overnight we’ve become an over-sensitive, finger pointing society who whines about everything.  We’ve lost the ability to turn the other cheek and instead feel the need to personally right every perceived wrong committed against us.

I like making  friends with everyone and It bothers me when people don’t like me and I  am especially bothered by people…

Sonographers..Overworked and Underappreciated.

I recently visited a friend in florida who is a sonographer, One night while I was there I waited for her to get home from work, she was suppose to get out at 5:00 and when the clock struck 6:30 I started calling her because I was getting worried. Right after I hung up after…

Sonographers’ and Social Media

After doing some research and discovering recent events that resulted in harsh punishment due tothe compromising of patients’ privacy, protected under the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability andAccountability Act),  It has me questioning as a sonographer how well we are trained to understand this law and the consequences that come along with it.  In talking with…

Romance or Reality In The Workplace

If any of you have fell prey on a dreaded office romance then you would agree with me that it’s a huge no no. A failed workplace romance can not only hurt your reputation but your career as well.  You can’t control where you find love, but when romantic sparks fly on the job, you…
