Washington, DC, hospital gets 'dirty bomb' sensors

USA Today, November 5, 2008

The 926-bed Washington Hospital Center, the largest private hospital in the nation's capital, has begun installing sophisticated new radiation detectors in an effort to better prepare for a terrorist attack with a radiological "dirty bomb." The sensors will immediately let doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff know if someone contaminated with dangerous radiation enters the emergency room or other areas of the hospital.
