Tuberculin Skin Test Reporting
When a clinician thinks a patient may have latent tuberculosis, it should be reported. This includes most patients who:
- Have a positive Tuberculin Skin Test
- Have been a contact of an active tuberculosis case
The reporting form should be completed by any clinician who performed the Tuberculin Skin Test.
To report a Tuberculin Skin Test, you can either:
Follow-up to the Tuberculin Skin Test report
- Every positive Tuberculin Skin Test reported to the Infectious Disease program will be investigated to verify Latent Tuberculosis Infection
- Public health nurse will provide the client with education about tuberculosis and review the optional treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection
- Anti-tuberculosis medication will be provided if ordered by the health care provider
