I work in a hospital setting and I have minimal patient contact, but they wouldn’t fire me/not hire me if my TB test came back positive. There are lots of people with positive TB tests. Some due to the vaccine avalible, and some were exposed but never contracted.

I think for him being in IT he will have minimal to no patient contact. The hospital just has to know to keep it in his file, but his hiring should not be dependent on the test.

Hope This Helps

Having a positive TB test means nothing. I always test positive for TB and I worked in nursing for years! They just had to do a chest xray every time I tested positive to make sure it wasn’t really TB.

Having a potistive TB test really doesn’t mean much. The TB vaccine is given routinely in many other countries around the world…the U.S. doesnt offer it, I suspect, because it would cost too much money to give everyone a chest x-ray…he needs a chest x-ray to see if there are any whitened, condensed areas indicating an active infection. They can also do a sputum sample as well. No worries.
