all of which add to the delay in which a diagnosis could be made or treatment started. even if nothing life-threatening, a patient may still have to wait hours waiting for the doctors to review the films. how inconvenient!
well, guess what? the hospital finally invested in an online system where the xray films are immediately uploaded & these can be reviewed immediately at anywhere a viewing screen is installed.
i saw one of these in the wards but it was placed just next to the wash basin.
i thought it was unintentional but the same thing was done at another ward.
you'd think that with it's team of IT-savvy staff & electrical engineers, the hospital would be advised to keep the computer & wash basin apart.
perhaps somewhere along in our education system, while we're striving to train rocket scientists (or astronauts?) & genious mathematicians, someone forgot to teach the students to use common sense.
