"It's a significant amount of work for most institutions to have to do the screening every year," he says.

The new language is an important addition, says Geoff Kelafant, MD, MSPH, FACOEM, medical director of the occupational health department at the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System in Mattoon, IL. Kelafant was a consultant to the Joint Commission Committee on Healthcare Safety and supported the creation of separate employee health standards."There is now explicit verbiage that says you must do this," he says."It doesn't say just TB or bloodborne pathogens; it says worker safety."

Kelafant, who is chairman of the Medical Center Occupational Health Section of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in Arlington Heights, IL, and coordinates an e-mail list on medical center occupational health, notes that occupational health physicians and nurses are reporting more requests for information from Joint Commission surveyors.
