As we first reported in Mac's Safety Space on the Hospital Safety Center last Friday, The Joint Commission published a new Sentinel Event Alert about MRI safety on February 14.

The alert covers both EC and patient safety concerns in MRI suites. The Joint Commission issued a series of recommendations that accredited hospitals-particularly those due for survey soon-should consider.

Watch for further details and analysis in upcoming issues of Briefings on Hospital Safety and in today's Mac's Safety Space.
