TB: Health care worker screening
Recommendations for testing and screening health care workers for TB are based on each facility's risk classification. To determine your facility's risk classification, complete the CDC's TB risk assessment worksheet using Colorado TB data. Then, find the recommendations for your facility in Appendix C, page 134, of CDC's guidelines.
