Description:

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Radiation Therapist.

 

Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.

 

Youre equally comfortable with applying and executing ionizing radiation and providing excellent customer service.

Youre great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.

 

Us.

 

St. Marys Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 346-bed regional medical center is in Grand Junction, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.

 

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.

 

We.

 

Together well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well honor each others dignity and surpass the standards we set. Well encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

 

Well laugh at each others jokes (even the bad ones). Well hello and high five. Well celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

 

Were proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.

 

Your day.

 

As a Radiation Therapist, you need to know how to:

 

  • Check prescription, diagnosis, chart and patient identification. Explain procedures to the patients, reinforcing the radiation oncologists and/or nurses instructions regarding reactions to the treatment and their care.
  • Prepare room and equipment for the patient according to the prescription, i.e., immobilization devices, blocks, field sizes etc. Transfer patients as needed.
  • Verify the treatment Mus and beam energy in the treatment chart noting any prescribed adjustments. Document treatment Mus cumulative dose, site specific doses, treatment parameters, instructions, diagrams, photos, and all billing information.
  • Perform treatment simulation and all that it requires for procedure (including cerrobend block fabrication). Develop x-rays and port films as needed, filing as needed. Observe and inquire of the patient any unusual reactions or events.
  • Assist in maintaining order and cleanliness of the unit. Maintain appropriate stock levels.
  • Complete daily progress and discharge documentation according to departmental standards. Accurately document productivity information.
  • Participate in quality and patient safety initiatives. Identify potential areas for improvement including processes that could be streamlined or revised to improve patient satisfaction. Identify potential safety hazards that may create problems for patients and/or staff, and take appropriate actions. Document patient plan(s) of care, tests and examination results in the medical record as directed by the provider. Escalate non-routine issues, questions and/or concerns to the practice manager or healthcare provider(s). Ensure safety checklists/quality controls are completed as required.
