The radiology nurse's role requires a high level of knowledge, expertise and independence in the radiology departments both outpatient and inpatient at various locations. The RN provides services to a wide variety of patients with diverse needs and about whom information may be limited. Radiology nurses routinely start or check peripheral IVs, assess and access ports, monitor patients during procedures, administer medications including moderate sedation, to name a few and help patients with their personal needs. The nurse also informs the technologist or radiologist of any unusual patient needs and performs specialized nursing duties, such as administering IV moderate sedation or analgesia during special procedures and closely monitoring patients with cardiac/pulse oximetry. The Radiology departments call on nurses to care for patients transported from intensive care, patients in emergency situations and pediatric patients and others needing sedation. In addition, the Radiology Nurse performs phone assessments and education prior to the patient arriving for their procedure. This continues as the RN circulates during the procedure and post-operatively calling the patient. A Radiology Nurse supports the patient and the family throughout the perioperative phases of care.
