Precautions for tuberculosis
Feb 23, '10
What are all of the isolation precautions for suspected TB and confirmed TB? Also, I am curious if you have seen any cases in your practice and if proper precautions were taken. Thanks!

Precautions for TB include wearing a mask and keeping the patient's door closed, even if TB is just suspected.
