Preceptor A preceptor is an experienced nurse proficient in clinical teaching who is specifically assigned by the Employer the responsibility for planning, organizing and evaluating the new skill development of a nurse, nursing technician, nursing assistant or licensed practical nurse enrolled in a defined program, the parameters of which have been set forth in writing. The preceptor is responsible for the specific, criteria-based, goal-directed education and training of a nurse assigned a preceptor for a specific training period. Nursing management will determine the need for preceptor assignments. The preceptee may be assigned to a precepting team where there is a planned approach for the joint sharing of preceptor responsibilities over a specific training period. There shall be no duplication of preceptor pay for the same hours. The Employer will provide preceptor training. It is understood that staff nurses in the ordinary course of their general professional nursing responsibilities will be expected to participate in the orientation process of new nurses. These orientation responsibilities will include such things as providing informational assistance, support and guidance to new nurses. Nurses assigned preceptor responsibilities will have these additional responsibilities considered in their direct patient care assignments.

RE-WEIGHING PRODUCT Deliveries are subject to re- weighing at the point of destination by the Authorized User. If shrinkage occurs which exceeds that normally allowable in the trade, the Authorized User shall have the option to require delivery of the difference in quantity or to reduce the payment accordingly. Such option shall be exercised in writing by the Authorized User.
Influenza Vaccine Upon recommendation of the Medical Officer of Health, all employees shall be required, on an annual basis to be vaccinated and or to take antiviral medication for influenza. If the costs of such medication are not covered by some other sources, the Employer will pay the cost for such medication. If the employee fails to take the required medication, she may be placed on an unpaid leave of absence during any influenza outbreak in the home until such time as the employee has been cleared by the public health or the Employer to return to the work environment. The only exception to this would be employees for whom taking the medication will result in the employee being physically ill to the extent that she cannot attend work. Upon written direction from the employee’s physician of such medical condition in consultation with the Employer’s physician, (if requested), the employee will be permitted to access their sick bank, if any, during any outbreak period. If there is a dispute between the physicians, the employee will be placed on unpaid leave. If the employee gets sick as a reaction to the drug and applies for WSIB the Employer will not oppose the application. If an employee is pregnant and her physician believes the pregnancy could be in jeopardy as a result of the influenza inoculation and/or the antiviral medication she shall be eligible for sick leave in circumstances where she is not allowed to attend at work as a result of an outbreak. This clause shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code.
