http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/nurse’s-infection-causes-tb-warning-at-san-jose-hospital/ar-BBnsyDH A nurse at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center contracted active tuberculosis, potentially putting 350 infants in the San Jose hospital’s newborn nursery at risk, officials announced Friday. .... Apart from the babies, an additional 368 mothers and 338 employees were also exposed to the infected worker, said Dr. Stephen Harris, chair of pediatrics. Staff are providing chest X-rays to babies along with a daily antibiotic liquid, which can kill the disease and prevent infants from becoming sick. Harris said the staff “had to very carefully evaluate risks and benefits,” when coming up with a treatment for the infants. They decided on isoniazid, a liquid antibiotic that is being specially formulated by the department of public health in order to reduce side effects. Infants will have to take the medicine daily for six to nine months, Harris said.
