I am starting a new job mid-July, and a PPD test for TB is required since I work in healthcare. I have not gone for the physical or orientation yet so have no idea how they will respond if I say I won't b/c I'm pregnant...???
Most of the info I have found says the test is safe (but then they say that about vaccines too
: don't they!!), but I am wondering if anyone knows different. I want to be armed with good sound info against if necessary to make my stand. I need this job though, so I am hoping they agree to an exemption based on prego status. My last job, in the same type of facility, actually had as part of their policy that they would not use the PPD test on any pregnant and/or nursing mom...I didn't even have to put up a fuss!!
Anyone have any good info/advice on this?
