Limited OB ultrasounds will be performed by the center’s new nurses as part of their training.
The practice/proficiency scans will be conducted under the direction of a licensed sonographer from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5 and from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11.
Those who are pregnant can aid the center by signing up for a free ultrasound with no obligations.
"We at Oasis are excited that two more nurses have completed didactic (classroom) training to perform Limited OB ultrasounds. After a few weeks of practice scans, they are now ready to have their proficiency evaluated by licensed sonographers,” said Executive Director Martha Jobe. "For the purposes of the proficiency scans, interested parties need to be at least six weeks pregnant at the time of the scan.”
According to Jobe, the proficiency scans will not be diagnostic in nature and will be used for training purposes only. Oasis Medical Center is not medially responsible for any medical interpretations on the scans on Nov. 5 and 11.
"As with all of our services, there is no cost to the client. Oasis is a 501 (c)3 corporation supported by private funding,” explained Jobe. “Our regular services include: Pregnancy Testing and Verification, Limited OB ultrasound, Information on Pregnancy Options, Preparing for Baby/Parenting Education, Adoption Education and Referrals, STD/STI Testing and Treatment, After Abortion Help, and referrals for Community Services.”
