StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 8/10/12 D/E Pay Rate: $35.00 - 37.00

The Radiology Department is located on the third floor adjacent to the HD/OR/TLC units. We utilize state-of-the art technology to diagnose and treat both inpatient and outpatients. We are a Level One Trauma Center and a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Our nurses, physicians, and techs collaborate to provide cutting edge, evidence-based therapies and are also involved in exciting research studies to improve patient outcomes. Our team has sub-specialty training to provide care in various modalities which include Prep and Recover, IR Body, IR Neuro, Ultrasound, CT, MRI, and Musculoskeletal. We support patient procedures for each modality by performing patient screenings, prepping pre-procedure, administering intravenous conscious sedation, and providing post procedure care and education. We also support UW Clinics who provide U/S, MRI, and CT services.

Interventional radiology nurses (IR RNs) are responsible for monitoring patients during radiology treatments and ensuring the patient’s comfort while educating them on invasive radiology procedures. The IR RN also assists radiologists during procedures. Unique to the IR RN’s duties is conscious sedation, in which the nurse, working under a physician’s direction and supervision, administers sedation and analgesics to the patient to achieve a mildly depressed state of consciousness.
