My medical physicist recommended several corrective actions in our physics survey. Will our facility be cited if we do not implement all the recommendations?
It depends. If your medical physicist recommended that you fix the part(s) of your equipment or practices that failed to meet FDA’s requirements, then you will be cited for not implementing those recommendations. You will not be cited for failure to implement recommendations regarding items that are not required in the regulations. If your medical physicist’s recommendations concerned problems that he/she thought you may encounter if you did not take action, and if you chose not to implement the recommendations, you should at least document that you considered such recommendations and the reasons you did not implement them.
