Pregnant Interventional Radiology Nurse
- 0May 15, '12 by nataliernbsnI've been in IR for about a year and a half now and recently found out that I was pregnant. Is it safe at all to work in IR while I'm pregnant? I need to know because I just got hired in an IR outpatient center and don't know what to do.

Go to your manager TODAY and inform him/her that you are pregnant.
There *should* be a departmental/institutional plan to protect pregnant employees who routinely work around radiation.
Good luck to you!
