After Hours & Physician Offices
Prisons, jail facilities and detention centers face challenges when providing medical care for inmates, especially when it comes to imaging services like X-rays. While these tests are necessary, transporting an inmate with multiple guards to a hospital or emergency room can be costly, as well as present a security risk. Mobile medical imaging can save your facility time and money by eliminating the need to transport for testing.
Alpha One performs on-site X-ray, ultrasound and EKG tests for inmates at your facility – reducing your security risk and reducing staff downtime. On-site imaging eliminates the need to transport an inmate to the hospital for those tests, meaning both inmates and staff members can remain at the facility. Mobile imaging is significantly less expensive than a hospital visit for diagnostic tests.
Our mobile imaging machines can assess minor injuries and determine what treatment is needed. We use X-rays to detect broken bones, as well as lung issues such as tuberculosis. Screening inmates for tuberculosis upon entry to the facility or prior to a transfer are good practices to ensure the health and safety of both inmates and staff.
Our digital reporting system allows us to quickly provide you with high-quality images to assess an inmate’s medical status. You will receive online login credentials so your medical team can view results of the tests, and the secure system allows you the option to send scans to an off-site doctor for evaluation.
We come to your correctional insitution location to provide 24/7 portable ultrasounds, EKGs, and X-rays. Contact us today to learn more about how we can serve you.
