This procedure should be followed in the event of an emergency where a victim or equipment should need to be decontaminated due to a chemical, biological, or radioactive release or spill. When planning to decontaminate in a medical emergency, procedures should be followed to ensure:


Decontamination of the victim

Protection of medical personnel

Disposing of contaminated protective equipment and wash solutions


The decision whether or not to decontaminate a victim is based on the type and severity of the illness or injury and the nature of the contaminant.

For some emergency victims, immediate decontamination may be an essential part of life saving first aid.

saving treatment.
