About: Queen's Hospital (Romford) Queen's Hospital (Romford) Romford RM7 0AG
If preparation for a bone scan means the patient is unable to be near pregnant women and small children for 24 hours due to the radioactive material injected into the patient, why is the nuclear medicine department not accessible via its own dedicated entrance?
Patients are told by staff that they can leave the department and return three hours later for the actual scan, which means they walk through the main corridor and main entrance with hundreds of people walking through/around them.
How is this a sensible arrangement? How does this keep other patients/visitors to the hospital safe?
The staff tell the patient to avoid these people yet it is impossible to do so.
