Wise words from SoR on getting one's point across, "If members do contact the paper, please ensure the tone and content of what you send is reasonable and polite. Angry and outraged is more likely to alienate the recipient, rather than persuade them..,"

You're very kind. TJC's minimum are, well, pretty minimal. I'm glad that you found it helpful.

The mportance of teaching about and labelling MR Conditional equipment. The loss of domestic's finger in this incident, as another buffer flies towards the scanner, underlines the need for a checklist culture in MRI. Ferrous accidents are always preventable!

It's the 21st century, people. There should be where you input basics (gender, age, height, weight, waist, inseam), point to the spot where your jeans develop holes, tell them what jeans you've had this problem with, and it makes recommendations for you.

If I don't learn about teflon-crotched bluejeans, I suspect that's my next step...

Dear Universe, yes, world peace would be nice... But in the interim, can you just tell me what to do differently so that *every* *pair* of jeans I own don't develop holes in the same spot? This is getting old (and expensive).

Though I must say that they were extraordinarily gracious, even shuffling other speakers from Thurs to Weds so that I could present in the slot I thought I’d been scheduled in. Far more than I deserved for an error that was 110% my fault.

I had been switching my calendar view between Sunday and Monday as the first day of the week, so it’s possible I put it in the right column (day) with the alternate display. Not surprisingly, that conference hasn’t invited me to present again...

Right place... wrong day. I was scheduled to present at a conference on Thursday. On Wednesday my phone rings... “are you OK?” “Ummm, I’m not supposed to be there until tomorrow.” “No, you’re scheduled for today.” Narrator: “He was scheduled for Wednesday. “

You likely did know it all... All that was handed-down to you. That, however, has been a great failing of MR safety, the lack of a formal curriculum and standards of knowledge. We all learned from our trainer, who learned from their trainer.

In my opinion, if facilities hadn't been providing safety training to their fluoro techs without a TJC requirement, they were verging on willful neglect should they ever harm a patient. Providing training for a procedure with well established risks seems simply prudent.
