Abstract

Background: Tuberculosis transmission is a sign fl cant hazard inhealthcare settings. Methods: Risk factors suggested by (J.VG guidelines in1994, which were adopted by the Italian Ministry of Health, were assessed in 29centres via questionnaires in 2005. Results: Few centers were equzpped withnegative pressure, respiratory isolation rooms. Half of the centres had high orongoing risk. Conclusions: The hazard is underestimated mostly because of a highnumber of initially undiagnosed TB patients.
