Radiation Therapy Machine

An elderly woman was undergoing radiation therapy following a mastectomy. When she was strapped to the stretcher assembly of the therapy machine and was being raised into position, the machine failed to shut off, and she was crushed between the stretcher assembly and the machine. It was found that the machine malfunctioned because of a defective relay switch and an inoperative safety shut-off switch.
