Care of Injured

1. Apply first aid, if necessary, using caution not to further aggravate the injury while disregarding the possibility of radioactive contamination, which can be dealt with at a later time.

2. Stay with the victim until emergency team members arrive and advise on the extent of the incident, the victim's condition, and the extent of contamination, if known.

3. Accompany the accident victim to the hospital, if possible, and take along a GM survey meter, if available, whenever radioactive contamination is suspected.

4. Care of a Contaminated/Exposed Person -- The Radiation Safety Officer will evaluate the extent of the exposed person's dose. If necessary, arrangements will be made for the exposed person to go to the hospital for examination to determine the extent of radiation damage and/or treatment.
