Weekly Poll: Cleaning procedures

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 RotheschildĀ  pointed out the neglect and also the difficulty in cleaning these rooms [1]. 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 [2], who has said there will be greater enforcement.

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