Tuberculosis (TB) testing is often needed for jobs in the healthcare industry, for people who are teaching or for students who are starting college.
Tuberculosis (TB) testing is often needed for employment or for school. There are two types of TB tests; skin test and blood test. We provide both of them at Lake City Company Care.
The most accurate way to test for TB is through a blood test. For this test, a healthcare professional will draw the patient’s blood and send it out to a lab for analysis. Lake City Company Care utilizes QuantiFERON Gold (QFC) for all of our TB blood tests.
An alternate and more economical way to test for TB is by administering a tuberculin skin test (TST). This test is also called a PPD because during the test, purified protein derivative (PPD) is injected into the top layer of the patient’s skin. In 48-72 hours the patient must return to the clinic for a “PPD read” when healthcare professional assesses the site of the injection and delivers results.
At Lake City Company Care, you don’t need an appointment for TB testing but please note that PPDs cannot be placed on Thursdays.Back to top
Respirator Fit Test/N95 Mask Fit Test
A respirator fit test analyzes the seal between a respirator/mask and your face. OSHA requires fit tests to be done annually for workers who encounter possible respiratory hazards in the workplace.
At Lake City Company Care, we do qualitative fit testing to determine if your mask creates a seal or if there is leakage into your respirator/mask. Fit testing takes about fifteen to twenty minutes and you must bring your own mask. You are required to be tested using the exact same make, model, style, and size respirator/mask that you will be using at work.Back to top
