  • Overview

    To be part of our organization, every employee should understand and share in the YNHHS Vision, support our Mission, and live our Values. These values—integrity, patient-centered, respect, accountability, and compassion—must guide what we do, as individuals and professionals, every day.

     

    The interventional radiology team consists of physicians, nurses, and technologists that use a variety of imaging techniques to perform minimally invasive procedures on inpatients and outpatients requiring vascular access, drainages, stenting, embolization, and biopsies. The interventional nurse routinely works in all imaging areas including: ultrasound, MRI, diagnostic x-ray, cat scan, and the interventional lab and is vital to the assessment and planning of the patient’s procedure. The increasing technological demands and changing patient care paradigms requires the radiology nurse to use their clinical knowledge, sound judgment, and critical thinking skills, as well as skills adopted from the operating room, post anesthesia care unit, critical care unit, ambulatory care unit and emergency room to provide care to the patient undergoing diagnostic interventions and therapeutic procedures.
