TB Tests

CHI St. Vincent Infirmary has begun transitioning back to the TB skin test.  Instead of the annual TSpot lab draw, we are converting to annual skin tests which will be conducted in Spring and Fall (April and October) of each year going forward. We just recently sent out emails to those receiving them this spring. If you  haven’t received  an email, you will receive yours next week .  Please make arrangements to come to the Terrace Room during the week of May 23-27.  Employee Health staff will be there from 6 am to 6 pm each day so that you can have your TB administered and read.  You will receive your card upon completion of testing.

It is important that you have it done during this window to avoid becoming delinquent and being placed on suspension.  There will be other events going on throughout this week as it is National Employee Health and Fitness Week so come out and check out what’s going on and what’s to come.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the mass TB during next week any nurses interested please contact Tanekia Lewis at tslewis@stvincenthealth.com or call 501.246.9405. NCAP points are available.
