Was it that important to "out" these two women? If in fact you're telling the truth, why would you find it necessary to do this? I'm not sure I understand your motivations.

Who gets the $25k?
You took the words right out of my beak!
$25k is just chicken feed in MRCH's check book.

Funny, I am a local vendor, and I haven't been paid by Mad River Hospital for months for work I did in June 08. The scary place is hanging on by a shoe string. Totally unfunded and mismanaged hospital. Go to St. Joes

yeah I moved to Idaho 8 years ago after working for St. Joe in Eureka for 26 years. Talk about scary medicine.....you can be anything you want to be in Idaho and they will never ask you for your education or qualifications.

geez. maybe she works for rancho springs hospital in so cal. they just got fined twice within a 6 month period.
hospitals are so desperate to hire people that no one checks them beyond their license, fingerprints and **** tests. and once they are hired their backgrounds arent routinely checked.
Do you have any details on the Rancho Springs Hospital? What happened there? Thanks!

Idaho has no licensur for xray techs or anything else radiation related. this probably happens all the time in Idaho

First off it's technologist not technician. Second, you go through a lot of school and she is just a dumbass! It's horrible. Her ARRT should be revoked. It gives the rest of us a bad name. You have to go know ALARA to get registered and then advanced registered in CT! What the hell was she doing. On a single slice scanner, you have to push the button too many times not to know that you pushed the dang button. Liar!!!!!!1

If you look at Raven Knickerbocker's Twitter page, you get some idea of her attitude towards small children like the one she burned:

"I think that hyperactive 3 year-olds can be used as a form of legal torture..." (12:44 PM Apr 30th)

You got that wrong, that is a different Raven that was Connie's girlfriend. That Raven is totally not involved with this X-ray case. very important not to drag people's name through the mud!
