All Hospital Employees should have an annual TB skin test between January and June of each calendar year. Employees who have already tested "Positive" in the past should come by Employee Health to complete a short survey and pick up their compliant card.
TB skin test are given every weekday except Thursdays from 7am until 5pm. Tests are read in our office 48-72 hours later. (Self reported readings cannot be accepted)
Employees exposed to active TB should contact Employee Health to see if they need a baseline skin test.
Follow-up testing should be done 10-12 weeks after exposure.
