Please complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of this assignment. Part I: Case Studies
Choose only ONE of the four case studies below and describe the proper transfer and imaging
method to use for the patient. Write a 150-300 word paragraph describing how the patient
should be transferred, the use of any equipment or personnel required, and considerations that
must be taken before, during, and after the transfer. A. Describe the exact transfer skills (according to the textbook), including a description of
each person’s role from locking wheels to supporting the head, etc. in moving the patient
safely. B. Describe the imaging technique (e.g., standing CXR) that should be used for the patient.
NOTE: In some cases, it is better to not attempt to move the patient. Describe what you would
do in that scenario, if you decided that was the best option.
Case Studies: 1. Ms. Jacobs is an inpatient who is recovering from pneumonia. She is brought to the imaging
department in a wheelchair for a chest x-ray. She is 70 years old and has arthritis that
causes joint weakness. She is labeled a “fall risk.” 2. Mrs. Patel, an 84-year-old female, fell in her home. She arrives in the imaging department
on a stretcher, complaining of pain in her left hip. Her left foot is everted. 3. Mr. Thomason is a 34-year-old who fell from a second-story scaffold while washing
windows. He claims that he feels fine, but was brought to the imaging department by
stretcher with his head taped to a backboard for immobilization. He is wearing a neck brace.
4. Jose Martinez is a 1-year-old patient who arrived in the ER in the afternoon with a high fever
of unknown origin. After the exam is over, he is transferred to a room and you are required
to transport him. A PA and lateral chest x-ray was ordered. Part 2: Unsuccessful Patient Transfer
Write another 150-300 word paragraph describing a real or imagined situation that involved
you or a coworker on the job in which a patient’s transfer was unsuccessful, resulting in injury to
the patient or other complications. What could have been done to prevent the situation from
occurring in the first place? What should have been done differently? What were the
consequences? What did you learn from the experience?
