Letter: Thank you to Tuomey radiology technician for dedication to caring for Sumter community

Posted

Prisma Health Tuomey Hospital employee Shannon McLeod Martin works in radiology as a CT technician. During the current crisis, she has been called on to serve as "site manager" of the COVID-19 ward. Her duty is to make sure all medical personnel entering the ward have proper PPE gear and are sanitized when leaving the area. Shannon has worked in radiology many years, mostly nights and weekends so other employees can be off. She is often called on to work long hours and always responds when her supervisor calls at the last minute to fill in for another employee.

With all the recognition nurses are getting ... well-deserved ... I thought it would be nice to also recognize radiology technicians.
