An Evaporator Accident

Your answer:
Finalize the preparations you began when you received initial notification by the plant.

Correct answer.
If your hospital has a plan for the management of patients that are possibly contaminated with radioactive material, the time from the initial notification by the plant to the arrival of the ambulance would be sufficient to prepare your facility and personnel.

Choose the items or preparations that you believe would be useful in the management of this patient:

  • Floor coverings
  • Specimen kit
  • Decontamination kit
  • Dosimetry for staff
  • Double glove and double gowns for staff
  • Lead aprons for staff
  • Proceed with scenario.
