A patient who entered Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center ER carrying a container of an unknown white substance caused a hamat incident, according to an article on the Post Register website.
Preliminary tests indicated that the substance was Fentanyl.
Initial air monitoring conducted by the HazMat team indicated no chemicals in the room. There is no one showing signs or symptoms of chemical exposure.
The hazmat team contained the substance and sent it to a lab for additional testing and verification. Those results are still pending.See the latest posts on our homepage
