TB: Health care personnel screening
While the CDPHE TB Program does not regulate private providers’ TB screening and testing processes, we provide recommendations based on CDC guidance. Please note that healthcare facilities typically need to take into consideration regulations or guidelines from their respective licensing bodies and other oversight agencies (e.g. OSHA, The Joint Commission, etc.).
