Tuberculosis Surveillance

TTUHSC requires baseline and annual tuberculosis skin testing (TST) for all occupational groups as defined in the EP 1.9 Tuberculosis Skin Testing Policy.  

Newly hired TTUHSC employees must complete the TB screening process prior to the start of employment date. 

Personnel who have tested "positive" in the past are required to have one baseline Chest X-ray and then complete the Tuberculosis Screening form.

At any time, if any employee has symptoms of TB (persistent cough, low grade fevers, unexpected weight loss, night sweats) further evaluation must be done.

All eligible personnel must participate annually.  Failure to be tested at least annually may result in suspension or termination of employment.
