Protecting Health Care Workers from Tuberculosis

The resurgence in cases of active pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and the emergence of drug-resistant strains of TB have increased the risk that health care workers (HCWs) may acquire serious TB infections which may not respond to usual therapy. Multiple steps are needed to reduce this risk. These include updated periodic training of HCWs to maintain awareness of potential risks of TB; optimizing the design, ventilation, and patient flow in clinical spaces; periodic TB surveillance testing of HCWs; appropriate use of effective respiratory protection; active infection control procedures; and periodic updating of written TB control plans.
