| PERSONNEL CONTAMINATION AND EXCESSIVE PACKAGE LEVELS AT NUCLEAR MEDICINE     |
| FACILITIES                                                                   |

| "A 300 millicurie multidose glass vial of technetium-99m was dropped on the  |
| floor at about 11:30 am [September 25, 2002] in a hot lab area at Baylor by  |
| a nuclear medicine technologist. About 40% of the vial contents spilled on   |
| the tech's pants, legs, and shoes. The initial radiation reading on the      |
| tech's clothing was 35.2 [millirem]/hr. An initial wipe test of the floor    |
| gave a reading of 81,012 dpm. The floor was decontaminated using radiowash   |
| until radiation wipe levels were at 366 dpm and the survey meter detected    |
| 1.8 [millirem]/hr. The tech's clothing were placed in storage for decay.     |
|                                                                              |
| "An outgoing nuclear medicine ammo box was about three feet from the spill.  |
| The box was labeled and had been surveyed and was ready for pickup by the    |
| nuclear pharmacy, Medi-Physics. The technologist did not believe the spill   |
| had contaminated the ammo box and did not perform an additional survey of    |
| it. The ammo box was picked up by a courier for the nuclear pharmacy. The    |
| courier picked up the ammo box by using the keypad lock to access the        |
| unoccupied hot lab as was his normal routine.                                |
|                                                                              |
| "At around 1:00pm, as the courier was leaving the Medi-Physics facility, he  |
| surveyed his hands and noticed radiation readings. Both palms were           |
| contaminated and so was his shirt and pants. The hands gave readings of 8340 |
| cpm's. The courier was decontaminated to approximate background levels. The  |
| only package picked up and transported by the courier was the ammo box from  |
| Baylor. The nuclear pharmacy contacted Baylor and notified the State.        |
|                                                                              |
| "The ammo box radiation readings were 2,664,800 cpm's and the main area of   |
| contamination read 150 [millirem]/hr. The courier vehicle showed             |
| contamination on the door handle, radio knob, steering wheel, and gear       |
| shift.  Radiation readings were in the range of 81,649 cpm's. The ammo box   |
| was placed in storage for decay. The vehicle was quarantined, decontaminated |
| to background revels, and returned to service the following day.             |
|                                                                              |
| "Additional information will be provided to the Agency in the Licensee's     |
| written report. An onsite investigation by the Texas Department of Health    |
| Bureau of Radiation Control identified items of noncompliance with Agency    |
| regulations."                                                                |

| "Description of event: The licensee reported the loss of a Troxler           |
| moisture/density gauge sometime between 1030 and 1115 on 15 October after    |
| the technician left a job site in the vicinity of Cactus and 151st  Ave. The |
| gauge had been in the back of a pickup with the tailgate down. The gauge did |
| not have a handle lock. A search of his route for several hours failed to    |
| turn up the gauge. The gauge is a Troxler Model 3400 series, serial number   |
| 29519. It contains approximately 10 millicuries of cesium 137 and            |
| approximately 50 millicuries of americium-beryllium. The company is offering |
| a $250 reward for information leading to the return of the gauge and truck.  |

| "Received phone notification today from Jeff Conners at Midwest Inspection   |
| Services concerning a source disconnect incident that happened yesterday,    |
| 10/14/02. Mr. Conners reported a radiography crew, working at a field site   |
| north of Denver, was unable to retract an Iridium-192 radiography source     |
| back into the camera. The radiographers called Mr. Conners, who is the       |
| assistant Radiation Safety Officer, for help.  Mr. Conners reported that he  |
| responded to the scene and was successful in connecting the source assembly  |
| to the drive cable and retracting it back into the radiography camera. He    |
| also responded that there were no overexposures to the radiography crew or   |
| members of the public.  Mr. Conners estimated his exposure for the recovery  |
| operation to be about 500 millirem, based on his pocket dosimeter readings.  |
| He stated that he would send a detailed written report to the Department     |
| within 30 days. The corporate RSO, David Ezell, was also notified of the     |
| incident."                                                                   |

|                                                                              |
| "At 1708 on 10-17-02, the Plant Shift Superintendent (PSS) was notified that |
| potentially fissile (PF) waste had been discovered improperly stored at the  |
| Wet Air Pump station in the C-333 building. A pile of used absorbent pads    |
| was found in the floor at the West Air station. The absorbent pads are used  |
| to soak up oil that has leaked from the pumps. These pads should have been   |
| placed in an AQ-NCS approved 5.5 gallon drum and controlled as PF waste as   |
| they were picked up. This is a violation of the requirements of NCSA         |
| GEN-15.                                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| "The NRC Resident inspector has been notified of this event.                 |
|                                                                              |
| "SAFETY SIGNIFICANCE OF EVENTS: The used absorbent pads were accumulated     |
| incorrectly; however the uranium concentration for heterogeneous waste is    |
| low and a large quantity of heterogeneous fissile material would be required |
| for a criticality to occur.                                                  |
|                                                                              |
| "PATHWAYS INVOLVED:  In order for a criticality to be possible, the          |
| interaction process condition would also have to be violated. However, the   |
| interaction control was maintained and therefore a criticality was not       |
| possible.                                                                    |
|                                                                              |
| "CONTROLLED PARAMETERS: The two process conditions relied upon for double    |
| contingency for this scenario are interaction and geometry.                  |
|                                                                              |
| "NUCLEAR CRITICALITY SAFETY CONTROL(S) OR CONTROL SYSTEMS(S) AND DESCRIPTION |
| OF THE FAILURES OR DEFICIENCIES: The first leg of double contingency is      |
| based on a minimum 2 ft. edge-to-edge spacing requirement to ensure double   |
| contingency for spacing violations involving waste drums end other items     |
| containing fissile/potentially fissile material. This control was not        |
| violated.                                                                    |
|                                                                              |
| "The second leg of double contingency is based on geometry controls of the   |
| waste when it is placed into an AQ-NCS approved waste drum and the secondary |
| containment pans used to store the drums. Since the waste was accumulated on |
| the floor and not into the NCS-approved container, this control was          |
| violated. The process condition was not maintained and double contingency    |
| was not maintained                                                           |
|                                                                              |
| "Since the used absorbent pads were not generated into an AQ-NCS approved    |
| waste container, the process condition for waste accumulation was not        |
| maintained. Therefore, double contingency was not maintained.                |
|                                                                              |
| "CORRECTIVE ACTIONS: A buffer area has been established to control movement  |
| of fissile material within the area. A remediation guide will be prepared by |
| NCS prior to removal of the used absorbent pads.                             |
|                                                                              |
| *****UPDATE ON 10/18/02 AT 2120 FROM BEASLEY TO LAURA*****                   |
|                                                                              |
| "As a result of continued evaluation, it was discovered that the pile of     |
| absorbent pads was with 2 feet of the 4 inch diameter wet air header.        |
| Therefore the minimum 2-foot spacing control has also been violated. Even    |
| though the spacing control was violated, the existing configuration is       |
| bounded by analysis, and it is acceptable  to continue to use the header     |
| piping within 2-feet of the pile of absorbent pads.                          |
|                                                                              |
| "While approved analysis does exist to safely bound the current violation    |
| configuration, both controls relied upon for the safe generation and         |
| handling of potentially fissile waste material were violated.                |
|                                                                              |
| "In order for a criticality to be possible, an additional violation would    |
| have to occur resulting in an unsafe mass of fissile material accumulating   |
| in an unsafe geometry.                                                       |
|                                                                              |
| "Approved analysis exists which bounds the existing configuration and        |
| demonstrates it is subcritical. However, the process conditions for waste    |
| accumulation were not maintained. Therefore, double contingency was not      |
| maintained."                                                                 |
