The Nearest Book Meme
Tagged by chimosa and doing it even though she called me a loser.


1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

The Text

- Develop a plan to provide for staff's physical and mental health needs at work (food, rest, ability to contact family during prolonged shifts, recuperation - including breaks from PPE, as well as psychosocial support systems).

- Designate appropriate staff to be responsible for the monitoring of employee health and adherence to appropriate infection control precautions. Consideration should be given to assigning full-time staff in all patient care areas to be solely responsible for observing staff compliance with proper donning and doffing of PPE, and educating them immediately if errors are noted.



That's what happens when I do this at work. Hey, if anyone's totally grabbed by this potboiler, I can send you a copy in pdf.

I tag ceeinjax, bfmomma, kestrelsparhawk, executrix, and lemurgrrrl. My apologies if any of you already did this and I missed it.

Hey, did you know that donning/doffing time and time spent working between the area where protective clothing is donned and the patient-care area is compensable under FLSA, but time spent waiting to don before work is not compensable? IBP Inc v Alvarez, 126 S.Ct. 514 (2005).

I had no idea. Knowing you is like a college education.

Heh. If I were to do that right now, it'd be the operating instructions for the Sharp EL-733A business calculator. In French.

Just be glad you didn't tag me!

But you're so sexy when you type in French! And with math, too? Be still my heart.

Un ami se rend à l'étranger et vous cè sa voiture pour la somme de $4150. Un peu plus tard on vous propose de vous racheter la voiture pour $5275. Quels seront votre marge brute et votre bénéfice brut si vous vendez la voiture pour $5275?

... Are you turned on now? *g*

Ah, good, then I don't feel bad about not having anything really neat within 1.5 feet. My choices, going clockwise, are "Artemis Fowl," "Island of the Blue Dolphins," "Joy of Cooking," "Java Programming for Dummies," "Why Cats Paint," "The Da Vinci Code," "404 Narrow Lot Home Plans," and "Hop on Pop." Actually, the very closest is "Clifford's Spring Clean-up," now that I look beneath the mail.

and I bet Clifford's Spring Clean-Up doesn't even go to page 123.

I own the book "Why Paint Cats." It's very amusing, and I suspect very different from your book on "Why Cats Paint"!

Not cool? I beg to differ! (That was the title of a book my grandfather self-published, mostly concerning extreme free market economics.) It's a problem that Hop on Pop and Clifford don't have 123 pages, though.

LOL!! Aw, I didn't think *you* were a loser. (except now that I read your passage...) Hehehe. What is that a procedure for, anyway? I'm sure it's easily figure-outable (shut up, its a word. I swear) but my mind started buzzing after "prolonged".

It's from the city health department Pandemic Flu plan. From a section entitled "Planning Steps To Be Taken By Health Care Facilities." PPE is Personal Protective Equipment - gloves, masks and so on.

I feel so educated all of a sudden, it's crazy. Now I feel like I, too, can take part in a Pandemic Flu procedure.

You think that's bad?

Bwahaha! Alas, I couldn'dt use my first one, because it was Reagan Comics and only had one sentence per page. The second one, that page is a list, but I'll go obligingly copy it.

Yours, at least, is educational!
