Because the NRC was able to obtain reports from only 30 states for its survey, the actual number of patients receiving the wrong type or dosage of radioac tive drugs is likely to be much higher. The medical study is reported in Monday’s edition of Science Trends Newsletter. The commission found the kinds of mistakes made by health care personnel administering radioactive medicine included giving patients the. wrong drug, giving the medicine to the wrong patient, using incorrect methods to administer the drug and giv ing the wrong dosage. About 12 million Americans receive radioactive medicine each year. While radiation ther apy to treat cancer is best known to the public, mildly radioactive isotopes are commonly adminis tered, orally or intravenously, to help physicians diagnose dis eases. The NRC reported 798 pa tients in the 30 states were “mis- administered” radioactive subst ances from January 1981 through June 1982. Of that num ber, 98 percent involved “the diagnostic use of isotopes,” rather than treatment. The remaining 14 incidents involved various forms of radia tion therapy. The report stressed that when the millions of annual doses of radioactive drugs are consi dered, the rate of error in admi nistering the medicine is no high er*! han one-tenth of 1 percent. The NRC did not state whether any of the 798 patients were harmed by the medical mis takes, but radiology experts told Science Trends there was no reason to believe anyone was in jured. They argued the error rate for nuclear medicine is lower than for other types of medical care. Nonetheless, the government study warned, “We believe the data highlight potential problem areas that licensees could review to assess the adequacy of their anc l trainjJ procedures rams.” It noted that giving,, radiopharmaceutical to or giving radioactive mi the wrong patient accoi moic Ilian 90 percentof takes. “ Fhe primary coy, factors appear to k errors associated with .uid identifying ri| mac euticals stereo inleat <" >'■ nagged kits, thett of nuclear medicinerem and patient identificai N R( ’. concluded. Pulitzer denies misconduct tag United Press International NEW YORK — Roxanne Pulitzer says she did nothing to warrant being called an unfit mother and blames lawyers in her divorce trial for making her and Peter Pulitzer enemies, a People magazine interview says. Pulitzer’s divorce trial left her without custody of her twin sons or and without claims to her ex- husband’s estimated $ 12 million fortune. She recently hired pali- mony lawyer Marvin Mitchelson to try to get her children back. During the 18-day divorce proceeding in Palm Beach, Fla., Pulitzer accused his wife of hav ing several affairs. Florida Circuit Court Judge Carl Harper ruled Mrs. Pulitzer guilty of “gross moral miscon- Detroit’s one-chip city now United Press International DETROIT — Detroit is known as the Motor City and at one time it could have been cal led Potato Chip Town, too. Now the city has become a one-chip town. The city, the nation’s potato chip consumption capital, is down to one potato chip manu facturer with the newly announced closure of Superior Potato Chips. Teamster union members voted Saturday to accept the 53-year-old. com pany’s severance pay offer of S90 for each year of service. Even without a large number of chip makers in the city, De troit is easily the No. 1 potato chip-eating city in the country. The Potato Chip-Snack Food Association says Detroiters eat some 7 pounds of potato chips annually, compared with the na tional consumption average of 4.3 pounds. The closing of Superior makes Better Made the city’s only chip maker. In the late 1940s, there were 20 potato chip manufacturers in Detroit.
