Weekly Poll: Cleaning procedures

By: March 23rd, 2009 Email This Post Print This Post

There have been a number of developments over the last few months regarding properly cleaning the MRI-suite, especially in order to protect against MRSA. A paper by Dr. Peter Rotheschild  pointed out the neglect and also the difficulty in cleaning these rooms. Cleaning crews are often prohibited because of the strong magnetic fields that can be hazardous to the workers. More recently, that paper has captured the attention of the Joint Commission, who has said there will be greater enforcement.

Given the dangers to both workers and patients, do you have specific procedures for cleaning MRIs?
