Before working in a hospital or other healthcare facility staff must be properly immunized and screened for communicable diseases. Passport Health has worked with individuals and organizations to help staff meet these requirements in as timely a manner as possible. We understand the urgency to clear individuals for vital roles in the healthcare industry.
What is Involved:
Whether you need a Hepatitis B, MMR, or Varicella immunization or Titers peformed to verify protection we are happy to see you in one of our seven Colorado locations. We can also perform testing for Tuberculosis using the PPD method or the T-Spot / Quantiferon Gold method which obtains results within a few days rather than the 30 days needed when a level two Tuberculosis test is required. We obtain all proper medical releases to provide feedback to your organization that you are cleared for employment. These services are available on a one on one basis, however Passport Health is also able to provide on-site services to groups such as Nursing and Medical Schools.
How the T-Spot / Quantiferon Gold Test has cut Credentialing times by 90%:
(references organizations who require a level two PPD test that takes 30 days)
Unrivalled Clinical Performance
- Very few false negative results (sensitivity ~95%)
- Virtually eliminates potentially toxic chemoprophylaxis due to false positive results
- Unaffected by BCG vaccination and common non-tuberculous mycobacteria
Benefits for Healthcare Staff from T-Spot / Quantiferon Gold testing
- Virtually no repeat testing (due to low frequency of indeterminates)
- Results within several days
- No need for patient return visits
