Yes. Salute! 

Cos personally I will be an instant merlion, non-stop, as my imagination will refuse to rest. 

Same goes to those who collect "body parts" from anywhere, the roads, flats, reservoirs, suicide cases, murders, etc etc. 

Hope they are paid well. 

Stay safe 

Cheers

Respect! 👍

I know someone has to do it but one always has a choice to want to, as a job. 

So ya, thanks for continuing, probably u very numb to it by now.

Out of genuine curiosity, is there any particular incident where an Xray revealed anything very unusual? 

Of course if classified, then pass over the curiosity. Dun let the cat out. 

Stay safe 

Cheers

Yes. Fetus xray at KKH during my clinical attachment. Every week got like 3 or 4 cases. Really sad. Can't imagine how the mums felt. Some really small and some very big already.

Individual body parts, not yet.

Got to use the medical tape to separate the limbs for AP(frontal) and Lateral(side) projections. The standard 2 views. As it is dead, it is unable to position itself and the limbs are stiff.

The xray form does not have the fetus name but rather, they put son/daughter of the mother's name.

The fetus come from the lab, wrapped in towel and inside a small cardboard box with handles on top, like some cake box but brown colour. Usually the xray are taken early in the morning before the first patient.

It was an eye opener for me. After the first 2, it is pretty much routine liao.

Need to find the cause of fetus death. For documentation and to prevent the parents from suing the hospital for negligence. 

Not only xray, blood test and I think also genetic testing too. Xray is the last procedure before ot goes either back to the parents or the hospital dispose it.

Means the cheapest qualifying bid, usually, but it still might not be cheap in absolute terms. If trauma cleaning is a niche field with few players, then the baseline pricing surely isn't a few hundred dollars a job.

I read the article. Actually the corpse is already dealt with and removed by the time these cleaners are called. They are engaged by the home-owner to clean up the remaining mess and residue from the decomposition process.

If the home-owner want to save money, can buy PPE, cleaning supplies and DIY.

Yes, regrettably I have first hand experience with this. The cops and the designated “black van” will remove the body and bring it to SGH mortuary, thereafter the cops will lock up the property whilst trying to find the NOK. These cases are always classified as unnatural death, requiring the coroner’s attention and an investigating officer to ensure there’s no foul play. 

Those guys are focused on the body. All other fluids, residue and whatnot are left in place. So even your typical NPP officer is expected to deal with such situations on their shift, when it happens.

If decomp gets a chance to work long enough, the innards build up so much gas, the cleaners have to scrape the ceiling as well.
