employee health division," Irby said.
"Why should I have to go through
all that, and risk my health and my
life just to do my job?"
Waste handler Tyrone Pouncy,
who has also voiced complaints
about his working conditions, said,
"Sometimes we open up the carts,
and bags aren't completely shut.
Blood and pee spills on the ground
and we have to clean it up."
Waste handlers come into fre-
quent contact with large trash bins

called robocarts, which are filled
with bagged garbage.
"We have to sort through the
carts and separate cardboard, linen,
and trash," Irby said. "Most of the
time the red bags (used to store bio-
hazardous waste) are just tied sha't,
and not sealed. When the bags turn
over, blood spills throughout the cart
and everything becomes
contaminated.
"The University says this is one
of the leading healthcare facilities in
the nation," Irby said. "Then why
should I have to risk my life like this
everyday working for them. I can

always get another job, but I can't
get another life."
Cleary said U-M has appealed the
citations, which require it to meet
standards by Nov. 28.
"They will meet with our de-
partment to confer, and possibly
modify the selected abatement date
selected to come into compliance
with the correct standards," Cleary
said.
Cleary said that after MiOSHA
responds to the appeal, the case will
probably go to the courts. If the ap-
peals are pressed through the entire
process, it could take several years
to settle.

fee - ranging from $10 to $35 -
based on income.
Despite the price, both Planned
Parenthood of Mid-Michigan and
the Washtenaw County Health
Department anticipate the new
facility will test U-M students.
"We see a fair number of stu-
dents," Lamerand said. "One of the
reasons that comes up really has
nothing to do with the quality of
health care. There is a perception
that their anonymity - being a face
in the crowd - is more likely here.
I think that may extend to HIV test-
ing."
Collins said the restructuring of
UHS testing services may also
sway students to use other re-
sources because counseling ses-
sions and the testing do not occur
simultaneously.
Some students seem to be echo-
ing this prediction. Under the new
UHS procedure, people who want
to have an AIDS test must attend an
hour-long group educational ses-
sion. People still interested in being
tested then meet with a counselor
for 15 minutes prior to the test.
"People will get 50 minutes of
broad information about HIV and
AIDS and then when they come to
see a counselor, our counseling
visits are just 15 minutes. Thereby
we can see 50 percent more peo-
ple," said UHS Health Educator
Kris Hoppe, indicating that there
had been a 71 percent increase in

the number of people desiring HIV
tests from 1990 to 1991.
Hoppe acknowledged the UHS
restructuring of the HIV-testing
program might deter some people.
"There may be some individuals
who see that this is inappropriate or
not for them," she said.
Although people use
pseudonyms and do not release per-
sonal information during the UHS
group educational session since it is
not a question-and-answer period,
some students said they are still
concerned about maintaining
confidentiality.
LSA junior Stevan Simich is
wary of the change, arguing that
people will be insecure in a group
setting. "I think that's pretty bad for
people who want confidentiality,"
he said.
Simich said he understands the
UHS HIV-test program restructur-
ing was a response to the tremen-
dous number of people desiring
testing, but added, "In that situation
they can make an exception, be-
cause that's very personal and pri-
vate.... The way they're running it
is just to scare people away. If I
were to do it, I'd probably go to
Planned Parenthood because of the
confidentiality."
Contemplating further steps
Planned Parenthood of Mid-
Michigan might take, Lamerand
added, "As the need increases we'll
do more. We're testing the waters
to see how it works. There's cer-
tainly a possibility we could offer
more in the future."
