AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENT INVOLVING RADIOPHARMACEUTICALS

The following information was received by email:

"DRH [Mississippi State Department of Health] was notified at 0720 [CST], about a transportation accident in Jackson, MS, on Riverside Drive. Cardinal Health Nuclear Pharmacy Services was delivering radiopharmaceuticals to Baptist Hospital and Kings Daughters Hospital. The driver hit an icy patch on the road where a water main had broken. The driver lost control of the delivery vehicle. The vehicle turned over in the median and the driver was trapped. DRH responded at 0730 [CST]. The driver was not injured. Packages were dislodged from their protective security rack, that is required to prevent shifting and movement of packages. Radiopharmaceutical packages were surveyed and wiped for contamination. [No contamination was detected.] The packages were picked up by the Radiation Safety Officer so they could be delivered to the hospitals. The pharmacy's vehicle was then released to the wrecker service."

DRH closed this case on 12/28/2010.
