We are having to backtrack and add them back into our annual program which really means they all have to come in or fill out the paperwork. Our organization is much to large for us to track who has a hx of LTBI and/or who had treatment. Therefore, everyone must fill out the TB symptom review.

Warning: [This message came from outside of Spartanburg Regional Network]
For those who are making or have made changes to your TB screening program, what are you doing with non-treated LTBI staff who don’t provide patient care and don’t work in patient care areas. We didn’t included them (Admin, IT, etc.) in annual TB screening/testing requirements previously. With CDC changes are facilities now including them in annual risk assessments. Would like to hear what others are doing if you can share.
I’ve been waiting for the CDC to publish the companion document they have but am having to move forward with changes for our facility. We’ll include them in annual risk assessments going forward.
