Coming to Wesley Medical Center for an interventional radiology procedure
When you arrive at the hospital, you will check-in at admissions and be given directions to the radiology waiting room. You will then be assisted to a pre-procedure area, and most patients are asked to change into a gown. Any required labs will be drawn, an IV will be placed and a medical history will be obtained.
As soon as the team has prepared you for your procedure, you will be transferred to the procedure room. Following the procedure, you may be transferred to a recovery unit to be cared for by a nurse until it is appropriate to dismiss you.
Your family members are welcome to be with you before and following your procedure. They will not be allowed in the procedure room during the procedure. This is in the best interest of your safety and your loved ones’ safety.
