Minnesota hospital recently had an incident occur in which a Datascope MR
Monitor was brought into the MRI room in
preparation for conscious sedation. The monitor
was pulled into the magnetic field
and forcibly attached
to the MRI bore. Thankfully
there were no injuries.
MHA recommends that all hospitals check
any similar equipment
for MRI compatibility.
The Minnesota Hospital Association has worked with the
members of MHA’s Patient
Safety & Registry Advisory Council to prepare this alert.
