Just had a report of a slip and fall injury at the hospital where I work. These lots have been plowed back ( except were cars have not moved, salted heavily, and our walks have been cleared and salted.
Now I know alot of snow melted yesterday and the temps dropped during the night but I had a man salting icy spots early this am.
Injured staff member is complaining, (broke her foot)
I know accidents happen, but I can't have a crew here around the clock everyday just in the event that there
is a freeze. We will never be able to totally eliminate or prevent melting/refreezing problems. so why can't people just be a little bit more cautious during the winter.
If things were that bad over night, I am sure the security staff would have notified me. Any suggestions or recommendations?
