Radiation Safety Restructure

Hello from the office of Radiation Safety. You may have noticed that the Radiation Safety courses for Mountain View Hospital have been restructured for 2022. Previously we reserved this education for the staff of the departments that worked directly with radiation, however, during our last regulatory inspection the question was posed, “Would a general staff member of a non-radiation department be able to recognize a package in a hallway with a radiation sticker on it?”

Because Mountain View Hospital performs a variety of radiation patient procedures and possesses several categories of radioactive materials that are delivered through courier services (FedEx/UPS), the Radiation Safety Officer put together this safety education program in order to create a basic understanding for the general hospital staff in all departments.

The first course is a general radiation safety course that covers a broad sweep of concepts from a brief description of “What is radiation?” to “Which patient procedures will make the patient radioactive?” The second course is very short and includes a couple of mandatory pieces of information that could not be added to the first, such as “Who is the Mountain View Hospital Radiation Safety Officer?”

There will be no need to pull out a calculator in order to calculate radioactive decay times or dose delivered, but there will be several topics covered that may be very new to some: the difference between an “external” radiation source and when the patient is the radiation source, the difference between unsealed “liquid” sources and sealed “encapsulated” sources, the importance of time/distance/shielding in reducing your overall radiation exposure, and the hospital’s stipulated goal of keeping staff members exposures “As Low As Reasonably Achievable.”

I hope that you find the courses informative, and above all I hope they help to promote a culture of radiation safety for our staff and our patients.

David Theel, Radiation Safety Officer
