  • Veterinary Sales Executive Interview - East :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    11 2014 How did you come to work as a Veterinary Sales Executive After working as a registered veterinary nurse RVN for five years I sought a new challenge but wanted to remain within the veterinary industry I also wanted to go back to college at night to study for my Master s degree and this role allows me to have time for that too I always wanted to travel around the country and having met many sales reps during my time in practice I had a good idea of what the role entailed When I saw the job opportunity from Medray I decided to send in my C V as I was very impressed with them as a company after attending their dental CVE and I knew I wanted to work for them What do you like most about your job so far I love travelling around the different counties of Ireland as each day there s a different landscape to appreciate and no two days are the same The work is very varied and there is never a boring day when on the road Ireland has some amazing places so I have a very privileged office space What if anything have you found challenging Locating practices can be challenging especially when the weather is bad and the sat nav is having a bad day Apart from that I am really enjoying my time with Medray as I get to meet new people on a daily basis Could you describe a typical working day Each evening I write out a list of all of the practices I will be visiting and their location which prevents me going around in circles when I m out on the road I hit the M50 for 8am hoping to avoid as much traffic as possible then I ring the practices I will be visiting to remind them I will be popping by at some point In between my visits I respond to emails and phone calls I try to get around to as many practices as possible before heading home for 6pm What Veterinary Nursing skills do you still rely on in this role As a Veterinary Nurse I would consider myself exceptionally good at multi tasking working under pressure and also ever changing plans so I adapt quite well when a typical working day goes awry I have found the most beneficial aspect of my practice experience in relation to this role is the fact I have used the majority of equipment myself so I am aware of the benefits to Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses What do you miss most about veterinary practice I do miss working with animals but I have enough to keep me going at home an occupational hazard of being a Veterinary Nurse really The fact I get to meet so many new people each day makes up for the fact I often miss chatting with veterinary clients too Home Digital Radiology Radiology Supplies Veterinary Dental Uniforms

  • Healthy PACS Viewing! :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    10 2014 If the goal of ergonomics is to boost productivity and increase comfort while reducing workplace injuries and errors never before has ergonomic furniture been a more necessary fixture and economical necessity than in today s radiological environment The digitalization of the X ray department in the Klinikum Friedrichshafen by Lake Constance in Germany has led to a significant increase in productivity For this reason we already before the switch to PACS sought to optimize the ergonomic conditions for the transition from analogue to digital viewing in the department With the support of our administration and company doctors and occupational safety engineers the funds for the purchase of the state of the art PACS work tables were made available and the investment has paid off Together with the management of the department we were looking for a way to provide maximum flexibility with adjustability according to Dr med Mats Wikström The possibility to individually adjust the height of the table and the tilted table top has enabled the possibility to change working position from sitting to standing and vice versa This relieves the pressure on the spine and the shoulders and reduces the risk for musculoskeletal disorders so called mouse arm One of our colleagues who worked her for a few months has several years of experience working in a digital environment with PACS and RIS monitors but at conventional desks As it was very difficult to individually adjust the distance between the monitors and the radiologist she had to adjust the head position in order to be able to see the pictures clearly even more difficult also in combination with using bifocal glasses This was followed by fatigue and burning eyes neck tension and pain between the shoulder blades By having the possibility to work relaxed with our PACS tables the complaints dropped completely One essential advantage is the adaptive lighting The sensor continuously measures the brightness of the pictures and adjusts the background light automatically Ambient lighting is arranged in order not to reflect the monitors Vicinity lighting is provided to illuminate the background screen behind the monitors This illumination serves to minimize the fatigue of looking back and forth between dark and bright It is controlled from each work area The soundproofed background screen and side walls not only minimizes the sound but also shields the daylight from the windows This feature also makes it possible to work in even less darkening with a result of reduced fatigue and happier employees It also allows for high quality effective workflow and productivity gain but most importantly you really do need equipment to adapt to you and to what your individual needs are rather than having a user have to adapt to the workstation We believe that we have succeeded by choosing ergonomic designed workplaces for our department Klinikum Friedrichshafen GmbH Röntgenstrasse 5 D 88048 Friedrichshafen Germany Dr Med Mats Wikström Ph D Leitender Oberarzt Home Digital Radiology Radiology Supplies Veterinary Dental Uniforms NDT Dosimetry Consumables Clearance Lines
