Interesting article. Personally I would not consider lifting parts of well-written safety plans to be actionable plagiarism (who has the original "Do not pipette by mouth" reference?), though some may disagree. However, copying some 18 paragraphs from various sources without citation in a manuscript submitted for publication is pretty bad. I expect he'll be looking for employment soon.
