West Physics offers a full range of MRI Safety Services to hospitals and imaging centers, including MRI Safety Training and MRI Safety Audits. Proper magnetic safety training for MRI staff is essential to preventing life-threatening accidents and/or costly equipment damage, as well as to reducing medical facility liability. Accrediting organizations like the ACR, IAC, and Joint Commission also highly recommend that individuals working within an MRI environment (Zone III and Zone IV) have documented annual training in MRI safety. WPC provides both on-site and off-site MRI safety training options for technologists, nurses, anesthesia staff and ancillary personnel and we can even perform this training during your routine annual medical physics survey of the MRI unit.
While staff training is certainly an important component of MRI safety, every MRI facility should also have – at least once – a full on-site MRI safety audit by a qualified expert. The MRI safety audit provides a tangible way for your facility to identify and correct any issues that can potentially cause a safety incident. Our safety audit (which also includes training for your staff) can help you prevent potentially dangerous items from entering the magnet bore, causing patient injury or death. All it takes is one incident like this to change lives forever — investing in a little bit of prevention today can save facilities from tragic consequences in the future. Here are some of the features of our MRI Safety Auditing service:
In addition to consulting feedback during the audit, your facility will also receive a complete and detailed MRI Safety Audit Report shortly after the conclusion of the audit, and once any findings are properly addressed, will be awarded our “Certified MRI Safety Program” facility designation.
All of our MRI safety auditing and training services are provided by highly qualified and experienced MRI safety experts. In conclusion, our safety auditing and training services will not only reduce the possibility of an event at your facility and ensure your facility’s compliance with accrediting bodies; it will also distinguish your facility for its commitment to patient safety.
