    I thought a good topic for today would be changes in your practice due to things that have happened.

    I'll start with my most recent work experience.

    I don't care anymore what the pt says, even if they tell me they are currently on their period (unless there's documentation of hysterectomy) every female that comes in is getting a pregnancy test done prior to X-ray.

    While it wasn't directly related to me, I did triage on pt and hcg wasn't done prior to X-ray.. Even X-ray people question Pts and they may not be honest.

    About 4 years ago I put the name of the wrong hospital on a resume. Embarrassing! (Didn't get a call back either, wonder why?)
