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 NFR Company Care Starke.
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. NFR Company Care Starke utilizes T-SPOT 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.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 NFR Company Care Starke, 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
In an effort to be more proactive instead of reactive regarding employee health, NFR Company Care Starke has started offering Mammogram Parties to companies with large female based employee populations.
A Mammogram Party is when a group of women get together to have their yearly mammograms at the same time. Having this support makes it less stressful, and more likely women will get their yearly screenings.
The Mammogram Parties have fun themes like “Hollywood” or “Spa Day,” with festive decorations and theme related activities. Light refreshments are served and there is a guest speaker. As the party goes along, each person will be pulled back for their mammogram. When they are finished, they can rejoin the party.Back to top
In recent years, companies have begun taking better care of their employees. They realize that wellness initiatives help reduce workers’ compensation and time away from work while also increasing employee engagement. Ergonomic assessments are one way businesses have started trying to make the work place safer and more comfortable for their employees.
Ergonomic assessments involve evaluating an employee’s work space to identify areas susceptible to injury. After the assessment, we provide education and recommendations based on our assessment. The overall goal is matching the person with their equipment, work process and environment in a way that prevents musculoskeletal disorders, minimizes stress on the body and promotes efficiency.Back to top
