Static Magnetic Fields in MRI suite where unit was removed

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists "1997 TLVs
and BEIs" handbook is good reference for accepted static magnetic field
exposure limits. 
The concern I would have would be for individuals wearing medical
electronic devices such as pacemakers..your fields are close to the 5 gauss
limit.  Check out the ACGIH booklet.
