The aim of this publication, NYC Hospital Guidance to Responding to a Contaminating Radiation Incident, is to serve as a practical resource for New York City hospitals in planning a response to an emergency involving radioactive contamination.
This guide was developed by The New York City Hospital Radiation Working Group, a multi-hospital working group convened by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) that included nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, emergency medicine, health physics, emergency management, mental health, environmental medicine, and radiation-related treatment and monitoring professionals. Every effort has been made to ensure the information in this manual is accurate and consistent with sound radiation protection and assessment methods, policies, and practices.Go to Content
