There's an interesting article in this week's copy of C&EN on updated protocols for decontamination of victims of chemical exposures. It can be found at
and suggests that dry wiping of affected areas should proceed dousing with water.

I wonder if this will affect protocols for use of laboratory safety showers any time soon?
