Dirty floors and animals drop-pings are still pretty good redflags a food establishment mightbe turning customers’stomachsbut San Mateo County health offi-cials are now taking a more holis-tic approach to food safety andfacility inspections.Are sick employees allowed towork? Is chicken thawed in a mopsink? How are decisions madewhether to toss food at the end of the night or let it stick around?Does everybody wash their hands— constantly?In a move away from the his-toric approach of visual inspec-tions, San Mateo CountyEnvironmental Health Servicesnow uses a risk-based system thatincludes how the food is preparedand that managers and workers areproperly educated on how to keepillness at bay.“We really like to follow thepath of the food from the backdoor and watch or have its pathexplained. How do they accept it?Are temperatures and conditionslogged? Does it go into the coolerimmediately? It’s the chance toidentify and help the facility iden-tify the possible links in thatchain of the food-borne process,”said Environmental HealthDirector Dean Peterson.The county began looking at achange about four to five years agowith plans to reduce the number of illnesses and about three years agoin earnest started making actualchanges based on the Food andDrug Administration’s own com-prehensive risk-based approach.The changes include placingfood establishments in one of three risk categories which eitherdecreases or increases the numberof annual inspections, adjusts feesfor those inspections and giveinspectors the chance to form bet-ter relationships with owners,Peterson said.The inspection fee adjustmentsbegan Jan. 1. Previously, any of the county’s 4,000-plus establish-ments paid the same amount andwere slated for unannouncedinspections the same number of times each year — a lofty three to

School negotiations locked
Salary negotiations between teach-ers and the Belmont-Redwood ShoresElementary School District the weekof July 5, 2008 reached a completestandstill — beginning the finalstages of contract negotiations.After months of negotiations, theadministration and teachers reached astalemate on salary in April 2008. Noprogress was made between the twosides resulting in a call for fact findingthat week. This mediation processbrought in an outsider who examinesthe district’s finances and considersthe claims of both sides before puttingforth a recommendation.
County Styrofoam ban begins
Styrofoam foodcontainers became athing of the past forcounty-operated foodoutlets the week of July 5,2008 when an ordinance outlawingpolystyrene took effect.The ordinance only governed opera-tions under the county’s control — theSan Mateo Event Center, the SanMateo Medical Center and associatedclinics and all government buildings.The ordinance prohibited countydepartments from buying and usingpolystyrene foam and solid disposablefood service products. The ordinancealso required the use of “biodegrad-able, compostable, reusable or recy-clable food service ware.”
Trauma center talks arise
Before the Palo Alto MedicalFoundation builds its hospital in SanCarlos, a Belmont councilman theweek of July 5, 2008 wanted to makesure it includes plans for the county’sfirst trauma center.Councilman Bill Dickenson askedthe rest of the Belmont City Councilto get behind his idea to push for atrauma center at the new hospital.San Mateo County, with four hospi-tals, does not have a designated trau-ma center for the severely injured.Critical patients are instead rushed toeither Stanford MedicalCenter or San FranciscoGeneral Hospital.Dickenson was not thefirst to suggest San Mateo Countyhave its own trauma center. The ideais raised every few years in variouscities, but county emergency medicalservice officials contend there arenot enough annual trauma cases tosustain such a center — and therequired personnel — within SanMateo County.San Francisco General Hospitalhas served as the Level 1 TraumaCenter for the north county since1998. Stanford Medical Centerserves as a Level 1 Trauma Center forthe south county. Nearly all critical-ly injured patients in San MateoCounty are either rushed via ambu-lance or airlifted to one of the twohospitals.
