Nursing  

 

Introduction

Nursing section under medical imaging department is one of the most important sections in the department as most of the procedures cannot be done if nurses are not present. In the past the nursing roles were limited to some basic nursing skills to assist in the performance of the work. The number of the nurses at that time was limited and the level of those nurses was also limited to their role. In the present the situation is total different, the number of nurses are 22 (1 acting nurse manager, 7 SN1, and 14 SN2) most of them are selected carefully to face the new dutiesand the development of the department. Nursing roles are now more advanced as nurses are sedating patients, monitoring patients, caring of most of the patients under the department, organaizing of the flow works in some sections in addition to the basic skills that needed for daily work. We can say that nursing section was developed rapidly during the last 3 years especially after the assignment of a nurse manager.
