1.      What is the process at your institution? All workers (temp, 
locums, contract, regular, volunteers) must be cleared through EH; We will 
begin seeing all students this fall. 
2.      If data is collected where is it stored? In our EMR (SYSTOC) with 
all other records. No separate systems
3.      What do you do in the event of an exposure and how are those temp 
workers identified? treat like employees but bill under OH to agency (We 
have a combined EH/OH department)
4.      We perform drug testing pre-placement for our employees and this 
is required of the temp agencies to obtain. What about contractors(such as 
maintenance workers, project workers) who come in for a few days. Do you 
require drug testing? Drug screen performed within 7 days required for 
all. They can bring it in or we will perform. Sometimes we have to be 
flexible and will allow 30 days if we performed. Flexibility is primarily 
for locums, MD, CRNA's who are moving or traveling.
5.      For annual TB surveillance doyou include them for compliance to 
Infection Control? If they work for an agency no, if they work for the 
hospital yes.
