[Histonet] Regulations for TB exposure in histology


Dear Histonetters:
We are reviewing our safety procedures and policies for tuberculosis
exposure in unfixed tissue in the histology lab. We have arranged for
annual fit testing for N95 respirators but our hospital infection
control people are also asking if we need negative air pressure in the
room and additional safety precautions such as special hoods.  Does
anyone know of specific reulations regarding these issues.  

Thanks so much,
Linda M
