We seem to be having an issue with inpatients and ED patients being medicated prior to arrival in the MRI suite. We are frequently unaware that these patients have been medicated. Many of the nursing staff and technologists are concerned that it is only a matter of time before a patient gets into trouble in MRI because of their medications. These patients come without a nurse or any information about the meds they have been given.
Do any of you have any policies/protocols that you are currently using for these kinds of patients?
