Millard Fillmore Suburban has taken the next step in emergency preparedness by providing a dedicated decontamination room adjacent to the emergency room.
This state-of-the-art decontamination room has multiple areas to accommodate a large number of people. It can also accommodate non-ambulatory patients on stretchers. In the event of a large incident the facility has a large inflatable decontamination tent that could assist hundreds of people if necessary.
Why is this important? If exposed to hazardous materials:
- Individuals will need to remove and package all clothing due to potential exposure.
- Be decontaminated via showering.
- Be free of the hazardous agent prior to treatment in the ED.
*All contaminated waste water from the decontamination room is collected in a separate dedicated tank.
Decontamination can be used for any hazardous material exposure that leaves a substance on the victim. Some common examples are chlorine, pesticides and oils.
- Chlorine -the most common household and industrial cleaner in the world. If a person gets this on their skin, it can cause burns and serious respiratory distress if inhaled.
- Pesticides- commonly used in the agricultural industry as well as around homes. In low doses, it can be a skin/eye irritant, it could affect a person's nervous system at high doses and some are considered carcinogenic.
- Oil, including gasoline, is the most common hazardous material in the world. Oil can also be a skin irritant and very harmful if ingested.
More complex contaminants include nerve agents or cyanide exposure.
