We had our usual County Health Inspection at LLUBMC...and guess what we got? 
A...with 100 points! 
Getting an A is expected, but 100% is uncommon. Usually inspectors will try to find something to dock off points for.He could not find anything, and said everything looks great! :) Hospitals are categorized under "4" which means that it has the strictest regulations regarding food safety. Let me give you an idea of what actually happens: observations of hand washing; all ( Food handler's/ Servsafe)certifications of every employees are current; all equipments, including every refrigerators and freezer are working; temperature logs are filled out; FIFO ( first in first out) for all products, including milk, dairy, produce, frozen products; cleaning sign-out list for all positions, all areas are clean, including hoods, storage rooms, drawers; temperature of dish machine, and employees have to be able to answer to the process of using the three compartment sinks ( 60 seconds rule, and 110F in first compartment sink); dumpster/ the way trash are disposed; all trash bins have lids; dating and labeling of ALL products; expiration of products like breads; no dented cans on site; can openers must not have a speck of dirt; temperature of water at hand washing sinks in the Kitchen and nearest bathrooms; sanitizer concentration on work stations; holding time of all food...etc....and the list goes on...............but you get the idea of how easy it is to find one thing to deduct a point....(If an employee is observed to not wash  their hands after changing their gloves, that alone is 4 points!)
So, this calls for a Celebration!! Every food service employee received a certificate to recognize their hard work, and teamwork to achieve this! :)Papa Jones pizza, cakes, chocolate gifts, lemonade..

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
