The emergency response team is dealing with a radiation leak at the hospital. What action should be performed to prevent the spread of the contaminants?

Answer Explanation: All air ducts and vents must be sealed to prevent spread. Waste is controlled through double-bagging and the use of plastic-lined containers outside of the facility rather than incineration. Bleach would be ineffective against radiation and the ventilation system may or may not be deactivated.
