The Case study

You are working as a radiographer performing mobile chest examinations in the intensive care unit. You are asked to perform a mobile chest examination on a patient who is of indigenous descent. The patient weighs 145kg, and is unconscious and mechanically ventilated. The patient is MRSA positive. He is lying in a slightly oblique position, and needs to be straightened and moved up the bed for your examination. The nurse looking after him refuses to help you because she is pregnant.


From your previous clinical placement experience, and the knowledge you have gained from university, describe how you would get the patient in the correct position that you need for this examination. Your answer must include consideration of communication principles, manual handling and biomechanics, infection control, radiation safety and professional teamwork. You must include the rationale and reasoning for each of your decisions in your answer.
