What Are Radiology Discharge Instructions?
The Radiology Department at Cincinnati Children’s offers general instructions for discharge after a Radiology procedure.
If you have questions, contact us at 513-636-4251 (option 5) or 1-800-344-2462 (ext. 4251, then press 5).
Going Home from the Hospital
A transporter can help you with safely getting your child to the car (no buses after sedation). Children should not walk by themselves until they are stable on their feet.
Activity After Discharge
An adult must be with the child at all times until the child has returned to his/her/their usual state of alertness and coordination.
For more helpful advice on what to do with your child after discharge, such as diet, instructions if vomiting and/or calling your doctor “if,” please visit our main cincinnatichildrens.org site at https://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/health/r/radiology-discharge.
