AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - PATIENT UNDERDOSE

The following was received via email from the State of Nevada:

"This is an email to report a possible medical event. The licensee is Renown Regional Medical Center, the license number is 16-12-0016-01. Occurrence was 10/5/2018 and reported the same day by Renown's RSO. The administration of Y-90 was given, prescribed dose was 15.66mCi and the delivered dose was 9.86mCi. The reason for this was due to patient intervention, apparently the patient moved and pulled the IV [Intravenous therapy] out. A full report from Renown's RSO has not been received, just the initial report."

A Medical Event may indicate potential problems in a medical facility's use of radioactive materials. It does not necessarily result in harm to the patient.
