I’m going to try and do my annual compliance training tonight, so this wil be an abbreviated post. (Have you done your required training? Check here: http://training.utmb.edu/ You only have until Aug. 31.)
We updated Rumors or Trumors II this afternoon: http://www.utmb.edu/rumor2/seerumors.htm
I heard today that the loop road around University Plaza isn’t going to open at the end of this month as had been predicted. It’ll probably be ready, but the environmental health/infection control folks are concerned about plans to open the Waverley Smith entrance and the road while there’s still earth being moved around and major landscaping to be done. (For the well being of our patients, they want to keep the dirt and dust out of the hospital. When you think of who we house in Waverley—newborns & preemies—I think I understand the wisdom in their call.) In any case, keep your walking shoes handy. The new date is late in September, and the pressure is on to open the garage and the road at the same time.
