I perform x-rays for a living. As I am pushing my mobile x-ray unit down the hallway, a patient care technician tells abruptly says oh wait, I’m pregnant, please don’t push it near me. I explained to her, I’m not taking x-rays at the moment, I’m just pushing it down the hallway. Then she further says I know, but I don’t want any radiation to my baby. I looked at her, with a facepalm image in my head telling her I would not be standing right next to the machine if it were emitting x-rays. Some people think that once we graduate from x-ray school, we have lead in our veins that we are permanently blocked from getting radiated.
