RNs & RTs Always On Site: Why It Matters To You
IHA Urgent Care Centers are committed to a higher level of care. This is why in addition to our medical providers (Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants), we staff our centers with Registered Nurses and Radiographic Technologists. These healthcare professionals bring a wealth of additional knowledge and resources to the Team. They assist our providers with diagnostics, care and patient follow-up.
Registered Nurses (RNs) provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members.
Radiographic Technologists (RTs) are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care. RTs are responsible for accurately positioning patients and ensuring that a quality diagnostic image is produced. They work closely with radiologists, the physicians who interpret medical images to either diagnose or rule out disease or injury. For the images to be interpreted correctly by the radiologist, the imaging examination must be performed properly by a radiologic technologist.
