  • OK, she was the director, not the person in charge of the cleaning of the equipment. Did she know and sanction the improper standards? Or is was she just a scapegoat to make everyone feel like the situation was being handled?

  • Lovin I can't find a working link from when this story broke in 2004 but if memory serves she had knowledge of what was going on and did nothing.

    According to this, it was up to ten staffers. It's like at a restaurant...The directors take the fall for bad standards, but usually don't spend enough time on the day to day processes to actually be able to be effective. The investigation is ongoing from what I understand, tho.
