Nursing & Health Sciences Exposure to Tuberculosis Protocol

It is mandatory that any Eastern Florida State College student or faculty member incurring an exposure to tuberculosis fill out a complete Accident/Incident Report Form.  The supervising faculty member must sign the form for any student exposure.  EFSC security will conduct a follow-up and, in the case of a student exposure, will contact the supervising faculty member for further information.  EFSC Security will then report the exposure to the appropriate Department of Health.

Investigations of tuberculosis exposures are performed by the local/county Department of Health in the exposure area. The Brevard County Department of Health task force will investigate all tuberculosis exposures occurring in Brevard County. County investigations can take up to three weeks.

If the task force deems it necessary, they will contact the student and the supervising faculty for follow-up. Funding is available for any necessary follow-up care and medications.
