Patient safety is paramount when dealing with the initial stages of injury or illness. Transporting is risking further injury, causes additional stress, leads to prolonging the diagnosis and treatment times, and exposes the patient to additional airborne illnesses.
When an organization utilizes the services of a mobile digital imaging and lab company such as Mobile X-ray of Louisiana, we send a technician to you. Lab and imaging is administered onsite so the patient does not have to be transported at all or can wait until a diagnosis and treatment plan is in place.
