Curbs Ordered on Excess Hospital-Bed Radiation

The Health Ministry instructed hospitals, Monday, to replace adjustable beds or equip them with special switches to prevent excess radiation.

The instructions followed a check at one hospital by Israel Defense Forces Radio that showed radiation at 90 milligaus (mG), compared to the ministry's recommendation of a four mG limit.
