Nurses and TB Case Study


Nurse Jill implemented a TB education program at the homeless shelter. Every other month, she goes to the shelter and teaches a class about tuberculosis. In addition, every person who wishes to stay at the shelter must have a TB screening test. The homeless shelter contacted Nurse Jill and reported that one of the men who was staying at the shelter tested positive for active TB, but shelter staff now cannot find him. Nurse Jill finds the man at a nearby farm and starts him on medication. Who is at risk of contracting tuberculosis from this client? What primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention interventions did Nurse Jill use to prevent the spread of tuberculosis? What barriers to controlling tuberculosis did Nurse Jill encounter?
