MRI Accidents like this can be avoided!

Accidents like this should never happen! Injuries to Staff and Damage to Property can be avoided when the necessary safety measures are in place. It is critical to Update the Safety in Your MRI Facility and don't take for granted that all is ok with your written safety plan. According to a recent social media post, last week a prominent hospital in California had a major accident in the MRI Suite resulting in significant damage, and injury to staff.  The MRI tech was not in the room, MRI table was outside of the MRI room, Nurse and tech-aide brought patient into the MRI room on a non-safe MRI stretcher. Patient was thrown from the bed and the nurse incurred a broken femur and pelvis.

We all know that MRI uses a powerful magnetic field to produce detailed images of internal organs and structures of the body. While MRI is generally considered a safe procedure, it can pose significant risks to patients and staff if proper safety measures are not followed.  The accident above could have been prevented with the use of a safety device like TechGate from Z&Z Medical. 

TechGate is a device designed to prevent ferromagnetic objects from being brought into the MRI room. Ferromagnetic objects, such as oxygen cylinders, wheelchairs, and gurneys can be attracted to the strong magnetic field of the MRI machine and become dangerous projectiles like shown in the photo above. TechGate uses a series of sensors and alarms to detect the presence of ferromagnetic objects and prevent them from entering the MRI room.

MRI safety is essential for the well-being of patients and staff members. The use of safety devices like TechGate can help to prevent accidents and reduce the risk of injury. It is important for healthcare providers to prioritize MRI safety and ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to protect patients and staff members.

In addition to using safety devices like TechGate, healthcare providers should also follow best practices for MRI safety, such as screening patients for contraindications, ensuring that all staff members are properly trained on MRI safety, and following established protocols for MRI procedures.

MRI is a valuable diagnostic tool that has revolutionized medical imaging. By prioritizing MRI safety and using tools like TechGate, healthcare providers can ensure that patients and staff members can continue to benefit from this technology without unnecessary risks.

NEW MRI Sandbags

We are excited to announce the launch of our new MRI sandbags, which are designed to provide a more comfortable and secure experience for patients undergoing MRI scans.

One of the standout features of these sandbags is that they do not have handles. This might seem like a small detail, but it can actually make a big difference in terms of patient comfort and safety. Traditional MRI sandbags often have handles, which can be uncomfortable for patients to grip or hold onto for extended periods of time. The handles can also get in the way or cause discomfort when the patient is positioned in certain ways during the MRI scan.

Our new sandbags have been designed to eliminate these issues, providing a more comfortable and secure experience for patients. They are made from a soft, flexible material that conforms to the shape of the patient's body, ensuring that they are comfortable and well supported during the scan. The sandbags are also easy to position and adjust, allowing patients to find the most comfortable and secure position possible.

Overall, our new MRI sandbags are a great solution for patients and healthcare providers alike. They provide a more comfortable and secure experience for patients undergoing MRI scans, and they are easy to use and position, making them a convenient choice for healthcare providers as well. We are confident that these new sandbags will be a valuable addition to any MRI suite, and we hope that they will help to improve the experience of patients undergoing MRI scans. So, these sandbags are the best solution for patients and healthcare providers.
