AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - CONTAMINATION EVENT

The following information was received from the State of Illinois via email:

"Advocate Condell Medical Center called to report that a patient treated with 200 mCi of I-131 on 5/10/17, subsequently released on 5/12/17, had returned to the hospital's ICU unit that same night with unrelated complications and a contamination event occurred. Her husband and her doctor both called the hospital prior to her arrival to inform them of her previous treatment with I-131. They were able to prepare for her arrival and prep the ER in plastic. She was admitted to ICU and later transferred to a regular hospital room. The only contamination is from the plastic covering the mattress, which is being stored for decay and from when the nurse drained a Foley catheter and a drop of urine ended up on the floor. Cleaning did not totally remove it. The hospital decided they did not need the room and it has been closed to allow for decay.

"Additional surveys are to be conducted. The patient has since been released. The licensee will follow up with a written report."

SECONDARY CONTAINMENT DECLARED INOPERABLE

"On 6/2/2017 at 0241 CDT, Clinton Power Station entered Mode 2 with secondary containment boundary doors propped open. Specifically, both doors for Reactor Water Cleanup (RT) 'B' pump room were propped open with welding cables routed through pump room doors to perform welding in the RT pump room.

"At 0300 CDT, a Senior Reactor Operator identified that the doors were propped open and Secondary Containment was declared inoperable. LCO 3.6.4.1 Required Action A.1 was entered to restore Secondary Containment to Operable in four hours.

"At 0324 CDT, the cabling for the welding machine was removed and the doors were closed.

"Investigation determined that authorization had been granted while in mode 4, when secondary containment was not required to be operable. The doors were propped open at the beginning of the shift, prior to the mode change to mode 2 (0241 CDT).

"This loss of secondary containment is reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(C) as an event or condition that could have prevented fulfillment of a safety function needed to control the release of radioactive material.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."

PENETRATION ROOM FILTRATION BOUNDARY INOPERABLE

"This notification is being made as required by 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v) due to both trains of Penetration Room Filtration [PRF] being inoperable due to an inoperable PRF Boundary. At 0920 [CDT] on 6/2/2017, a gap was discovered between an electrical penetration room ceiling and the containment wall where seismic gap material was noted to be missing. The gap was subsequently closed and PRF testing completed sat. The condition was exited at 1345 [CDT].

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
