Interventional Radiology

As a nurse the role in the radiology department is varied and includes:

  • Pre-procedural care: assessment of past medical history, blood test results, vital signs, hydration, pain, identification, consent
  • Peri-procedural care: scrub nursing, conscious sedation, pain, recognition and actions to acute deterioration
  • Post-procedural care: airway/conscious level, puncture site, pain, blood glucose.

We care for a diversity of patients from children to adults, including emergency procedures and assess unexpected events across all modalities in the x-ray department.

We support our nurses in their development by completing competencies in scrub procedures and administration of conscious sedation medication.
