Chest x ray

  1. I wonder how long is a negative chest x ray for tb is good for in MA, or is it depend on the facility. I know some facility in other state will take an ex ray within the last 2-3 yrs, and I've seen agency that would take it within the last 5 yrs. I m really curious I m suppose to start a new job in a nursing home and my x ray is one yrs old and I cannot take another x ray now and I get a bad reaction to the skin test.

    It is an individual facility policy......but within one year is pretty common.
