Tuberculosis (TB) Prevention and Screening
Through this program, we identify, evaluate, and treat individuals who are at high risk of being infected with Tuberculosis (TB). We can also provide patient assistance for individuals who need chest X-rays.
Screenings are available Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
If you need a TB screening for employment, please call 307.633.4000 to make an appointment.
Your screening will be read 48 to 72 hours later, at which time we’ll provide written documentation of the screening for your employer.
If you need a TB screening due to exposure, please call 307.633.4000 and ask for a Communicable Disease Nurse. (TB screening for exposure is free.)
Tuberculosis Testing and Diagnosis
We provide the following TB testing options:
- TB Risk Assessment
- Interferon-Gamma Release Assays (IGRA)
- Mantoux Tuberculin Skin Test (TST)
Tuberculosis Treatment and Directly Observed Therapy (DOT)
We use Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) to ensure our patients both receive and take all medications as prescribed, as well as monitor our patients’ response to their treatment for latent or active Tuberculosis.
For individuals in both latent and active Tuberculosis, we collaborate with the Wyoming Department of Health to access patient medication assistance programs and ensure patients can access the medications they need.
