A VBLC report of 4.9 [micro]g/ dL or higher represented approximately 5% (n = 1,196) of all the DCHD LPPP screening results for the years 2010-2012.
The child's VBLC, age, weight, and nutrition history are the primary drivers for deciding when the LPPP manager activates the protocol (see step 4).
At that time, DCHD LPPP staff members also considered that a VBLC of nearly 5.0 [micro]g/dL represented the 95th percentile of its own program for the years 2010-2012, and that DCHD LPPP policy required immediate blood lead level monitoring and EHA/LRA when levels reached or exceeded 9.5 [micro]g/dL.
On October 2, 2014, DCHD LPPP staff received a VBLC report of 61 [micro]g/dL in a 3-year-old female refugee.
Finally, LPPP staff had to coordinate communication between and among languages, cultures, care providers, and alternative shelter providers.
* Note, too, that if the new test results for your building are below threshold levels, the LPPP will perform confirmatory tests and, based on these results, the DOH abatement order could be modified.
We expect the LPPP to be clarified and modified in the months to come.
Should you have any questions, the number of the DOH LPPP is: 212-285-4602 (BAN-LEAD).
