EN Revision Text: PATIENT UNDERDOSE

The following e-mail was received from the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) at Kootenai Health:

"A misadministration occurred at Kootenai Health in the Interventional Radiology Lab (ID 83814) during a Therasphere Y-90 Microsphere treatment. The prescribed dose was 66.36 mCi to segment 8 of the liver. The microspheres infusion started at 0943 PST when the micropsheres became visually clumped in the tubing of the administration set (distal to the box, prior to the microcatheter connection). Troubleshooting methods were performed, but the microspheres did not move through the tubing with multiple saline flush attempts. The infusion was aborted at 1016 PST. The room was surveyed per protocol and there was no contamination. The jar containing the tubing and microcatheter were measured per protocol. Calculations determined the patient received 12.8 mCi which was 20 percent of the prescribed dose. The RSO was notified at 1058 PST, the referring physician [was notified] at 1128 PST, and the patient [was notified] at 1150 PST."

EN Revision Text: UNIT 2 CONTAINMENT LOCAL LEAK RATE AND AS-FOUND INTEGRATED OVERALL LEAKAGE RATE EXCEEDED ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

"At 1751 EDT on May 25, 2021, it was determined the local leak rate test (LLRT) for the 2EMF-IN containment penetration did not meet 10 CFR 50 Appendix J requirements for both the inboard and outboard containment isolation valves (2MISV5230 and 2MISV5231). The LLRT was performed during the previous refueling outage at which time primary containment was not required to be operable. The leakage assigned to the penetration also resulted in total leakage exceeding the allowed overall leakage. The valves were repaired and retested satisfactory prior to entering the mode of applicability, This event is being reported as an eight-hour, non-emergency notification per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(A),

"There was no impact on the health and safety of the public or plant personnel. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
