RAD IDEA: SAFETY FiRsT

Candace Ray, B.S., R.T.(T), recently received a Safety FiRsT grant to implement an initiative that will elevate patient and technologist safety in the workplace. Funded by Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. and administered by the ASRT Foundation, the Safety FiRsT program awards two ASRT members per year a grant of up to $7,000 each to improve radiologic technologist safety in their departments.

Ray applied on behalf of Baton Rouge General Pennington Cancer Center. The grant will be used to purchase a ceiling lift for patient transfer in the facility’s busiest radiation therapy treatment unit.

“My team and I are so grateful to receive this safety grant,” said Ray. “By installing a ceiling lift over our treatment room table, we can create a safer environment for our radiation therapists and our patients. The installation will set a new standard for patient safety in radiation oncology in the greater Baton Rouge area, and our patients and therapists will be safer every single day.”

The ASRT Foundation and Canon Medical Safety FiRsT grants are funded by a grant from Canon Medical.

The ASRT Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, the world’s largest radiologic science association. The ASRT Foundation supports and empowers medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals and students to pursue opportunities that improve patient care.
