Abstract

A cross-sectional survey of 210 healthcare workers at a pediatric teaching hospital was performed to assess knowledge of published guidelines for proper measurement and documentation of tuberculin skin test results. We conclude that many healthcare workers have inadequate knowledge for optimal measurement and documentation of tuberculin skin test results.
