         This Court hereby enters a Protective Order regarding Wexford Health Sources, Inc.'s policies, procedures, and guidelines that may be produced during discovery or during trial.

         5. Individuals or entities permitted access to protected documents pursuant to Paragraph 2 above are hereby ordered not to show, convey, or reproduce any information or document so designated, or parts thereof, or copies thereof, or any matter contained therein, or any abstracts or summaries thereof, to any individual or to any entity who would not otherwise have access to said material under the provisions of this order, unless they secure the ...
