The Santa Clara County Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program provides consultation, directly observed therapy, case management and clinical services for patients with TB infection and/or disease. A Public Health Nurse case manager is assigned to each active TB case to investigate who has been exposed, provide testing and follow-up of contacts, assess the sites of potential transmission, promote patient adherence, and ensure patients tolerate TB treatment. Public Health Nurse case managers oversee the care of active TB patients and their contacts until completion.
Any confirmed or suspected case of active TB disease is required by law to be reported to TB Control within one working day. DO NOT wait for laboratory results to confirm the diagnosis prior to reporting. Cases can be reported by telephone at (408) 885-4214, or fax at (408) 885-2331. Please use the form below.
