about Health Exam
Aug 29, 2004

Dear Breuer,

i whould like to know is the HIV test is part of the health examination in Hospital setting for their workers ? do Doctors ,and nurses after accepted start their carer HIV test is part of their health examinations ?

Response from Ms. Breuer

Hospitals set their own policy about HIV testing for employees. In the U.S., a health care worker who tests positive is not automatically removed from the job. Removal would depend on whether the person performs invasive procedures. Even then, the person is more likely to have restrictions put on those procedures than to be removed.
