-scheduled TST block on Tuesday mornings to place, with a "read" block on Thursday afternoons. We take walk-ins during those blocks, and try to accommodate walk-ins that come in outside those blocks as much as we can. We also sometimes send the placement form with the patient to take to another clinic for the read, as appropriate. We charge a fee of $15 per test, unless it is an Individuals with risk factors for TB infection (contact, symptomatic, etc)-these folks we place for free. The majority of our tests are pre-employment or on-going employment screenings; with the new healthcare worker guidelines, we are asking for a regional meeting to discuss a unified approach that aligns with those guidelines. We do not do IGRA's at our department.
