A nurse is in the operating room where x-rays are being taken during the procedure. What is the best way to use this equipment safely?
Make sure the client does not have any metal in their body which could cause the machine to malfunction.
Have a lead apron and thyroid shield on when being exposed to active radiation, such as x-rays.
Ensure the equipment being used to take x-rays has sterile drapes and covers on it to prevent contamination of the sterile field.
Ensure the time out has been done prior to any x-ray imaging being taken.
