January 4, 2018 – The South Central Kansas Medical Center Radiology department recently completed their 2017 KDHE inspection with zero deficiencies reported. The annual inspection is a requirement through the U.S. Food & Drug Administration mandating certified inspectors assess a facility’s compliance with Federal standards.

“The Radiology Department and specifically the Mammography modality was gone over with a fine tooth comb, and we hit another home run with no deficiencies,” stated Katrenia Beane, SCKMC’s Lead Radiology Tech.

The inspection lasted an entire day, with approximately four-hours spent within the mammography area.

“It’s validation. I enjoy mammography, work hard and want to do the best for the patients,” said Jennifer Richardson, the hospital’s Lead Mammography Tech.

The inspection included an in-depth review with the department’s policies and procedures, including quality control, staff credentialing and continuing education, and patient follow-up. 

“I have three check systems in place to make sure we are not letting anything slip through the cracks,” Richardson said.

Richardson believes the key to the department’s success has less to do with the paperwork required and more about the actual patient interactions.

“You have to be caring about your patients in mammo. I enjoy all the ladies and all their little stories. I have a rapport with a lot of them. It is important that I make sure the women know what they are supposed to be doing,” Richardson said.

Experts at the American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) recommend that women receive an annual mammograms starting at age 40. For more information about SCKMC’s radiology unit or to schedule a mammography call (620) 442-2500.
