Resumen

BLANCO ALVAREZ, Laura María et al. Occupational overexposure to ionizing radiation in healthcare environment. Rev Asoc Esp Espec Med Trab [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.3, pp.245-249.  Epub 11-Ene-2021. ISSN 1132-6255.

Following the communication by the National Dosimetry Center (CND) of a potential exceeding the radiation dose limit in the ring dosimeter of the Nuclear Medicine worker who handles radiopharmaceuticals, the Health and Safety Occupational Service prepares a research report of the incident occurred, which is recorded as an occupational accident. The Radiophysical and Radiation Protection Service also prepares an incident report. It shows that, due to a breakdown in the automatic radiopharmaceutical fractionator, the worker performs it manually. The worker’s ring dosimeter record gives a final estimated monthly reading of 505.3 mSv, which exceeds the annual equivalent dose limits for limbs. The Health and Safety Occupational Service performs a special health surveillance of the worker, establishes an apt with limitations for one year and adapts the job position with restriction of tasks and with periodic follow-ups. The relevant preventive measures of organization and safety are applied.
