LABORATORY TECHNICIANS

SANITAS has a large medical testing laboratory, we process upwards of 500 investigations per day. It is busy, there is pressure, and only accuracy is accepted. We have a large team of technicians to carry this load for the 24 hours that we are open every day. Whilst we designate particular areas or duties as your primary work, we expect all of our technicians to be highly flexible. If you are not confident in some areas, you will be trained. As an employee at SANITAS Hospital you must be prepared to do any reasonable work requested, even if it is outside of your area or region of expertise.

RADIOGRAPHERS/SONOGRAPHERS

SANITAS has a very busy Medical Imaging department, including Radiology and Sonography. We have from 40-70 patient exams per day, all of whom need to be handled with extreme care and compassion, as well as technical accuracy. Our Medical Imaging team is small, all technicians are preferred to be multi-talented in both Radiology and Sonography.

Technicians work autonomously and are expected to take responsibility for their patients from booking up until the issuing of the report. All imaging patients are processed through our computer system, so a high degree of computer literacy is required. The imaging department is not open 24 hours a day, however this can change at any time and all technicians applying must be aware that night shift is a possibility and being on-call afterhours and on holidays is very likely. As an employee at SANITAS Hospital you must be prepared to do any reasonable work requested, even if it is outside of your area or region of expertise.

SANITAS Hospital is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, the nursing team is always busy and all team members are expected to carry the load.

Paper work and keeping patient files accurately is a large part of modern nursing and all nurses are expected to do their part. SANITAS is mostly computerized and holds computerized files for out-patients and in-patients, so computer literacy is an important part of the job also.
