The contest continues....so far 37 hospitals have submitted entries...BD
Thats what Clay County Medical Center, about three hours west of Kansas City in Clay Center, Kan., gets if it wins an online video contest sponsored by the MRI machines manufacturer. The 25-bed hospital does not have the resources to pay for its own MRI machine. Patients needing a scan must drive an hour to Manhattan or wait for the mobile MRI truck. Its really an inconvenience, said Tyce Young, the hospitals director of nursing. This would be a great tool for our patients. In the hospitals video submission, entitled Granny Gets an MRI, Young (a man) plays the title character. Clad in a dress and wig, Young plays an elderly woman who must face obstacles like a banana peel and a menacing bulldog while trying to get an MRI scan.
