The Lyrics

I haven't been posting very much lately since most of what I come up with is work-related stuff. I work at a hospital and unless the reader works in one too it may be hard to relate to. But I'm going to give it a try. For you "civilians" HIPPAA is the Health Insurance Privacy and Portability Act and Accountability. PHI is Private Health Information. I wrote this to help people remember how to properly discard not just PHI but hazardous waste since both are huge safety and compliance issues. This can be done to a cadence, a rap song (but not by me) or a "do-DO-do-do" blues tune if you don't use the last line of the verse.
We deal with certain kinds of waste
That can't be thrown just anyplace.
So we all need to be aware
We gotta handle it with care.
Just sing to yourself this song
And put that trash where it belong.
It's simple as can be!

When discarding sharps and glass
Give that waste basket a pass.
Things that can break through the skin
Need to be placed in a red bin.
Glass can break, a needle stick,
Cut someone or make them sick.
And it just might be you!

A red bag is what you should choose
For trash from which secretions ooze.
A leak will not just make a mess,
It's also biohazardous.
If you can remember this
You will not put your peers at risk.
And keep the floors clean too!

When PHI you must discard
You should not have to think too hard.
'Bout which container you should use
To dispose of that refuse.
Just sing to yourself this song
And you surely can't go wrong.

Obliterate with felt tip pen
Or place in a recycle bin.
We must protect that PHI.
And here is the reason why;
Disposing of it properly
Protects patient identity.

Thanks AFW, Alvin and Stuart. This is sort of going to be a commercial. Some of my employees and I have formed a close order drill team and we're working on a routine which will be filmed with ithe intention of it being used in employee education.
