Tuberculosis Referrals 

Guidelines

The following provides guidance for referral of patients to the Florida Department of Health in Collier County’s (DOH-Collier) TB program based on the Florida Department of Health’s (DOH) strategies for the control and prevention of TB in Florida. The first two strategies focus on identifying and treating persons with TB disease and the identification and treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) of contacts to TB cases. The third strategy is targeted testing and treatment to completion of persons with LTBI who are at high risk for progressing to TB disease.

Persons with suspected or confirmed TB disease are to be reported to the DOH-Collier by the next business day at 252-2699 or 252-6007 in accordance with Florida Statutes 381.0031 and 392.53 and Rule 64D-3, Florida Administrative Code (FAC). A referral form is not required for reporting of suspect or confirmed TB cases

Persons with Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI) - In order for the DOH-Collier to make the best use of DOH-Collier’s limited resources in controlling and preventing TB disease in Collier we are only able to provide LTBI evaluation and treatment to those persons at highest risk for progression to TB disease who are likely to complete treatment. The attached referral form identifies those persons with LTBI at highest risk for progression to disease who the DOH-Collier will evaluate and treat as appropriate. Persons who do not meet these criteria may be treated for LTBI by their private provider
