Capital Medical Center Has Second SAFESCAN Intercept Pillar Installed Three Months After First


Capital Medical Center, an affiliate of Capella Healthcare located in Olympia, WA, sought to provide a higher level of MRI safety for their new outpatient imaging center with the SAFESCAN Intercept Pillar system. Within just a few months with the new safety tool, the hospital purchased a second set for the improved protection of the MRI patients within the hospital.

Olympia, WA, April 09, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Capital Medical Center is a 110-bed hospital located in Olympia, Washington. In opening a new outpatient imaging facility across from the hospital, Capital Medical Center conformed with industry best practices and State license standards and provided their new MRI service with the protection provided by the SAFESCAN Intercept Pillar system. Just a couple months later, the hospital ordered a second set to help protect the patients and staff at the MRI scanner located in the hospital.

The always-on magnetic field of MRI scanners can attract magnetic metals with deadly force. Numerous accidents, injuries, and even fatalities, have resulted from powerfully attracted magnetic materials. Ferromagnetic-only detection systems, like the SAFESCAN products, are designed to alarm only on magnetizable materials, and ignore non-magnetic metals such as aluminum, titanium and brass.

Recommended for years by organizations as notable as the American College of Radiology (http://www.acr.org/SecondaryMainMenuCategories/quality_safety/MRSafety/safe_mr07.aspx) and the Joint Commission (http://www.jointcommission.org/assets/1/18/SEA_38.PDF), ferromagnetic detection systems like the SAFESCAN family of products are increasingly being required for MRI installations under hospital building codes.

And even when not compelled by codes for new construction, many facilities are electing to provide ferromagnetic detection for each of the MRI services, as Capital Medical Center has, in order to provide consistent levels of quality and safety for their MRI patients.

SAFESCAN® ferromagnetic detection systems by Mednovus are industry-leading MRI safety tools helping to protect patients and caregivers in hospitals and imaging centers around the world.
