Healthcare Facility Tuberculosis Risk Assessment

All healthcare facilities should assess their tuberculosis risk on an annual basis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have published guidelines for healthcare facilities to use in order to conduct a facility tuberculosis risk assessment.

The Risk Assessment Worksheet (pdf or Word version) includes questions that need to be answered in order to determine a facility’s risk classification (Appendix C of Guidelines document).
