Utah State regulations require patients to have a responsible adult present and able to drive them home after a sedated medical procedure. A taxi, Uber or any other paid driver cannot act as such. Patients arriving without a driver have the choice of rescheduling the procedure for a time when a driver can be present or having their procedure without sedation.
