The MRI scanner and suite is a valuable shared resource. In addition to making sure that all safety and operating policies and procedures are adhered to at all times, scanner operators will be expected to adhere to the full housekeeping checklist, in addition to the items below.

  • assure the projector is placed in standby mode when not in use
  • leave all peripheral equipment, including the biopac, response devices, control box, video and sound delivery systems in a neat and untangled manner, which will minimize the danger of equipment damage
  • ensure that no personal belongings are left in the scanner suite
  • restock the scrub drawers 
  • place all used linens in the designated laundry bin
  • make sure that all trash/recycling (including earplugs/earbuds, wrappers, used tape, etc.) have been disposed of in appropriate receptacles
  • wipe down all surfaces with frequent bodily contact (e.g. inside of the head coil, response pads, emergency squeeze ball) using the DBIC-provided Clorox wipes
  • return corrective lenses to their appropriate slots in the storage case, and wipe down frames with a Clorox wipe
  • log out of RedCap database when your lab is the last one scanning for the day
  • shut down the system when your lab is the last one scanning for the day
