Radiation Therapy

Posted on November 7th, by Megan in Uncategorized. 2 comments

When your patient is on radiation therapy such as having  a cervical implant, here are a couple rules that have to be in place when you are caring for them.

  • visitors stand 6 Ft away
  • Only care for patient 30 min at a time
  • flush toilet 2x after use
  • wash laundry separately ( Keep linens in room)
  • Drink extra fluids
  • Separate eating utensils

Quick Fact: Once a cervical implant is placed for radiation, the patient must be on bed rest for 3 days to ensure the implant does not fall out. If it does, it must only be picked up with metal forceps, not your hand.
