§ 30417. Student Supervision at Clinical Sites.
(a) Each clinical site used by the following approved schools shall designate in writing a lead supervising licentiate who possesses the specified certificate or permit, as follows:
(1) For diagnostic radiologic technology schools, radiologic technologist fluoroscopy permit schools, and limited permit X-ray technician schools, the lead supervising licentiate shall possess either a:
(A) Radiology supervisor and operator certificate. For limited permit X-ray technician schools teaching the dental X-ray laboratory category, the radiology supervisor and operator certificate holder may only be a licensed physician and surgeon; or
(B) Radiography supervisor and operator permit and, when applicable, a fluoroscopy supervisor and operator permit. For limited permit X-ray technician schools teaching the dental X-ray laboratory category, the radiography supervisor and operator permit holder may only be a licensed physician and surgeon;
(2) For therapeutic radiologic technology schools, the lead supervising licentiate shall possess a radiology supervisor and operator certificate.
(b) The lead supervising licentiate shall:
(1) Be responsible for supervision of students and for the acts and omissions of both students and any other individual providing direct or indirect oversight to students;
(2) Ensure a supervising licentiate is available for consultation by both students and any other individuals providing direct or indirect oversight to students; and
(3) Be responsible for compliance with the clinical site's affiliation agreement, or, if an affiliation agreement is not required, section 30415(a)(2).
(c) Except as provided in subsection (e), diagnostic radiologic technology students, when operating X-ray equipment, shall be under direct oversight until the student has achieved competency for the particular procedure. For students in a radiologic technology certification school, the determination that the student has achieved competency shall be made by a qualified practitioner who is either a CRT, as applicable, with at least two years of radiologic technology experience, or a supervising licentiate. For students in a limited permit X-ray technician school, the determination that the student has achieved competency shall be made by a qualified practitioner, as applicable, with at least two years of radiologic technology experience, except that a supervising licentiate need not meet the two-year requirement. Once a student has achieved competency, the student may then perform procedures under indirect oversight. However, students shall continue to be under direct oversight during performance of a repeat of any unsatisfactory radiograph or image. The competency determination shall be written, dated, and printed and signed by the person making the determination.
(d) Students of therapeutic radiologic technology, when operating X-ray equipment, shall be under direct oversight at all times.
(e) Students in an approved limited permit X-ray technician school teaching the category of DEXA, when operating X-ray equipment, shall be under direct oversight at all times.
(f) Approved schools shall maintain and make available to the department for inspection records of competency determinations and documentation of personnel qualifications.
