New Caregiver Health Screening
Welcome to Providence St. Joseph Health!
To protect you and our vulnerable patients, certain health requirements must be met before you start work.
Please complete this packet and bring it to your health screening appointment, along with your photo ID

Immunization and Titer records
Please bring as much documentation as possible regarding the tests and immunizations listed below. This will
prevent the duplication of testing and/or vaccinations. If you do not have documentation, the tests or vaccines
can be provided free of charge.

Release Assay (IGRA), which is a blood test for TB, QuantiFeron TB Gold or T Spot.
Where TB skin testing is performed, a two- test process is required. We will accept
documentation of a TB skin test (TST) performed within the last 12 months for the first step
and perform a second test during the pre-employment health screen.
Positive TB history: If there is a history of positive TST or IGRA, please bring that
documentation as well as a copy of your chest x-ray report (Baseline CXR performed after positive
TB test) and medical provider documentation of evaluation.
