Social Security Numbers on Incident Reports (Posted 10/11/2006)

The Radiation Safety Section will no longer require an individual's social security number to be included on an incident report. Incidents include doses received by individuals that exceed the dose limit and misadministrations of therapeutic doses. The incident reporting guideline, BHS/HFS-860, Reporting Guideline - Example Format for Excessive Radiation Dose Reports, has been updated so that the requirement for social security numbers has been removed.
