Chapter 199

< > Effective - 28 Aug 2013    bottom

  199.290.  Mandatory testing of health care facility workers — higher education, students and faculty, testing program required — rulemaking authority. — 1.  All employees and volunteers of a health care facility shall receive a tuberculin skin test or interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) test upon employment as recommended in the most recent version of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines for Preventing Transmission of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis in Health Care Settings.  If the screening test is positive, appropriate evaluation and follow-up shall be done in accordance with such CDC guidelines.  This provision shall not be construed to prohibit any institution from establishing requirements for employees or volunteers that exceed those stated in the CDC guidelines.

  2.  All institutions of higher education in Missouri shall implement a targeted testing program on their campuses for all on-campus students and faculty upon matriculation.  If an institution does not have a student health center or similar facility, such person identified by the targeted testing program to be at high risk for latent tuberculosis infection or for developing tuberculosis disease shall be referred to a local public health agency for a course of action consistent with sections 199.170 to 199.350.

  3.  Any entering student of an institution of higher education in Missouri who does not comply with the targeted testing program shall not be permitted to maintain enrollment in the subsequent semester at such institution.

  4.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2013, shall be invalid and void.
