[Histonet] TB exposure
Karen Bauer recounts the appalling story of a technologist heavily exposed to
tuberculosis, and then being refused a tuberculin test.
Sort of like you can't have chlorhexidine germicidal hand wash in the autopsy
room, because an autopsy room doesn't rate as a high-class handwashing
facility. Ignaz Semmelweis is turning over in his grave.
Surely your hospital requires every employee to have tuberculin tests done on
a regular basis - it's a JCAHO requirement, for one thing.
