"To give the best quality images is to give the best of myself..."
Megan Keyes, Cardiovascular Sonography Student
TranscriptMy philosophy of healthcare is how one embraces each patient every time. As healthcare professionals, when a patient is broken “we need to quit feeling sorry for,” them, “and instead look up to them, learn from them, and –if they will let us-join them in protest and prayer” (Introduction to Job). Brokenness is to not be fixed but embraced to fully understand one’s self and the journey they are on. Also, my own experience in the hospital has molded my view on patient care; as a result, every healthcare professional should always answer the three WWWs. They are who you are? What you are going to do? Why you care? These three simple questions give comfort and sanity to the patients who have no idea what is going on. Lastly, the contribution I will make to the medical field will be taking the best quality images so that the doctor can give the correct diagnosis of the patient. There have been too many times when a doctor has made a wrong diagnosis because the ultrasound tech (unlicensed sonographer) has taken poor images. To give the best quality images is to give the best of myself to others and help them on their journey.
