The Manager will also ask questions of clarification and prompt for details of staff efforts to interview, trace if lost, identify contacts, etc. CASES are called in a pre-determined order that allows DOT staff and clinic nurses to return to work ASAP. FILES will be slowly transferred from one pile to the other – as cases are called, presented, and discussed.
