When I-131 treated patients leaves the hospital they are not allowed to use
public transportation for a few days.
Normally they return home with a member of their family, but if non is available,
we allow them to take a taxi (as long as the traveling time is less than 1 hour).
IAEA BSS 115 Allows comforters of patients to receive a maximum dose of 5 mSv, and the
driver (is he a comforter ?) will not be exposed to that amount.
The question, do we have to inform the taxi driver that his passenger is radioactive ?
