| DISCOVERY THAT PART OF THE IMPLANTED SEEDS WERE NOT IN THE PROPER SITE       |

|                                                                              |

| A patient was referred for treatment, due to reoccurring prostate cancer, to |

| the hospital where he had previously had treatment. Seeds were implanted     |

| around May 2001.  A scan of the previous treatment of implanted seeds        |

| determined that many of the seeds were not located in the prostate, but in   |

| adjacent tissue where they would have been ineffective in treatment.  Also,  |

| a review of the records indicated a scan was performed in early 2002, but    |

| was not followed up on. The patient and referring physician have been        |

| informed.  The hospital is conducting an investigation into the event and    |

| also developing a plan to provide appropriate treatment for the patient.     |

|                                                                              |

|                                                                              |

| Post-op dosimetry on one patient was determined to be a misadministration.   |

| The dose that covered  the prostate was more than 20 percent different  from |

| the prescription as well as the penile bulb dose being close to 50 percent   |

| of the prescription dose.  Efforts are being made to contact the affected    |

| patient.  The licensee will continue efforts to obtain post-op dosimetry on  |

| the rest of the patients related to this incident so that  evaluations for   |

| misadministration can be performed.                                          |

|                                                                              |

| Post-op dosimetry for two patients were determined to be a                   |

| misadministration.  The patients had their prostates treated some time in    |

| the year 2001.  The iodine-125 seeds were placed  2 to 3 centimeters below   |

| the area where they were supposed to be located.  The improper location of   |

| the iodine-125 seeds caused more than 50% of the prescribed dose to be       |

| delivered to an un-intended organ.  The patients will be notified.           |

|                                                                              |

| Two additional patients of a group of seven were identified as having        |

| received a misadministration of iodine-125 to an unintended organ. The       |

| patients will be notified of this misadministration.  The licensee is in the |

| process of clarifying and document the issues related to this incident.      |

|                                                                              |

| Another patient has been identified who received a misadministration of      |

| iodine-125 to the prostate.  The prescribed dose was 144 Gy, and it was      |

| delivered using 76 seeds and 27 needles as planned prior to the implant      |

| date.  After reviewing the CT, which was done on Feb. 27, 2001, the V100 of  |

| the prostate received 29% of the prescribed dose.  The penile bulb at 72 Gy  |

| received 44.8%.  The licensee indicated that they have looked into 8         |

| patients who may have been misadministered, of which, one was not declared a |

| misadministration.  The other seven appear in this notification.  There are  |

| 23 total patients that the licensee intends to review.                       |

|                                                                              |

|                                                                              |

| "On June 23, 2003 at 3:30 PM the [University of Kentucky] radiation safety   |

| office received a call from an AU [Authorized User] in the Dept. of Biology, |

| because a shipment of I-125, triiodothyronine, 100 microcuries, had not been |

| received.  Upon review of the records it was found that the package had      |

| arrived on June 18, 2003, and had measured 10 [millirem]/hr at the surface,  |

| 0.1 [millirem]/hr @ 1meter, and no external contamination. The Radiation     |

| Safety Office shipping paper record shows the I-125 package was included for |

| delivery to room 109, Research Building 3, on June 19.  The required         |

| signature of receipt for the package was not obtained.  With the DOT         |

| shipping labels removed, the greatest likelihood is that the package was put |

| into the ordinary trash.  A thorough search of the Radiation Safety Office   |

| facilities and vehicles was conducted on June 23.  On June 24, the           |

| authorized user's lab was searched, including use of a low energy NAI (Tl)   |

| detector, as well as all labs where deliveries were made on June 19.  No     |

| trace of the package or contents has been found.  It was concluded that the  |

| highest probability was that the package entered the normal waste stream and |

| went to a landfill. Once in a landfill, the I-125 will be sequestered from   |

| any contact, and will be essentially non-radioactive in 1.65 years.          |

| Assuming worst case scenarios, the dose rate to the torso would be about 10  |

| [millirem]/hr or less, and would have to be held against the body            |

| continuously by a single individual for 10 hours to produce a dose in excess |

| of 100 [millirem].  Additionally there is no indication or likelihood of     |

| intentional or accidental ingestion of the contents since this is not        |

| intended for human use.  However, if the entire 100 microcuries were         |

| ingested by a single individual, as sodium iodide, the thyroid dose would be |

| 78 rem, and the effective dose would be 2.4 rem.  While no thyroid dose      |

| information has been  found for the triiodothyronine form, the effective     |

| dose from ingestion of 100 microcuries would be 17 [millirem].  Surveys are  |

| conducted on a continual basis, if the package did not go to a landfill it   |

| would likely be found during monthly use area surveys or quarterly           |

| supervisory surveys.  No NOV was issued based on the corrective actions      |

| taken by licensee to correct deficiencies prior to report completion."       |

| missing from a laboratory undergoing renovations. EHRS contacted faculty and |

| staff associated with the laboratory trying to locate the instrument. After  |

| scrap metal dealer. According to NUREG-1717, Systematic Radiological         |

| Assessment of Exemptions for Source and Byproduct Materials, the dose to any |

| individual from a scrapped Ni-63 gas chromatograph source would be less than |

| At 1607 EDT a significant electrical power grid disturbance occurred         |

| resulting in a momentary drop in voltage at the site, including both 2400    |

| VAC safety busses 1C and 1D.  The reduced voltage on the 2400VAC safety      |

| busses caused both emergency diesel generators to auto start, but not load.  |

| The plant is stable at pre-event conditions.                                 |

|                                                                              |

| Received grid disturbance that caused reactor trip at 1611.  The trip        |

| occurred due to over temperature delta set point being reached from load     |

| swings experienced on the generator. Subsequently in the recovery process,   |

| the Auxiliary Feedwater Pumps auto started from a signal from the Main       |

| Feedwater Pumps being secured. As a result of grid problems it was noted     |

| that Ginna did not meet the required number of emergency sirens (greater     |

| than 25% of sirens without power).                                           |

| The reactor scrammed from 100% power due to fluctuations occurring on the    |

| main generator and a loss of off site power.  All rods fully inserted and    |

| all MSIV's closed.  Reactor level is being maintained in the normal band of  |

| 173 to 214 inches using RCIC.  Reactor pressure is being controlled via      |

| SRV's in lo-lo set mode between 905 and 1017 psig.  Isolations occurred as   |

| expected for level 2 and level 3.  HPCI and RCIC started on level 2 signal.  |

| HPCI has been shutdown but is available.  All 4 EDG's started and loaded.    |

|                                                                              |
