Do not have an George Washington University Hospital or other neurological test done here. I was a student briefly and the technologist that was training me ALWAYS fell asleep while performing an EEG when he should have been charting on the patient. That is very dangerous for the patient that could have a seizure at any given moment.
This same technologist that performs most of the EEG’s also does not always measure the head correctly either and is more concerned about saving time instead of focusing on accuracy. I’ve seen him use rubber bands rather than ponytail holders to hold long hair in place too which can and does hurt patients.
One patient even said he was hurting her and he didn’t stop. They also have new employees in the lab watching the monitors of inpatients who don’t know what they are doing and were told to “figure it out”.
It’s just brainwaves… I’m sure they’ll “figure it out” just fine on their own. Save yourself from a nightmare and choose a better hospital that cares.
