I was doing my pre-lab for clinicals and the patient I was assigned had tuberculosis of her wrist when she was younger and was treated for it. Working as a CNA (and to make a long story short) I had a TB scare and needed to go for a chest x-ray (which was negative whew). Anyways I was wondering what that is exactly. Is it just located in her wrist? I noticed she wasn't in isolation and even had a roommate so I'm guessing it's not contagious? I couldn't find that much info on it.
