Information on TB Screening, Urine Drug Screening, and Respirator Fit Testing

N95 Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire--Must be completed before respiratory fit testing. Click here for information. 

Please upload the completed questionnaire onto the Patient Portal, accessible at campushealth.tulane.edu, fax to the Downtown Health Center at 504-988-3217, or drop it off at the Downtown Health Center.

 

TB SCREENING

Student Health will be placing PPD skin tests in the Innovation Center, Murphy 1st Floor, for the rising T3 class.

PLEASE NOTE: Even if you have had a positive PPD, if you get the Quantiferon gold blood test instead of a PPD, have taken INH, etc., please stop by and complete a TB Questionnaire. 

URINE DRUG SCREENING

You can disregard any appointment reminders you receive regarding the urine drug screen:

  1. The urine drug screens will be in the Innovation Center, Murphy 1st Floor (not the Downtown Health Center).
  2. Please disregard the lab appointment time
  3. You will not be charged any late/no show fees
  4. Please do not cancel your appointment online or by phone

RESPIRATOR FIT TESTING

Since saccharin aerosol is used during the fit testing, food or drinks with artificial sweeteners should NOT be consumed within 15 minutes prior to the scheduled test.

In order to be fit tested, males are allowed to have a mustache but NOT a beard, goatee, or long side burns. In accordance with the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard, individuals with facial hairs that interfere with the respirator seal CAN NOT be fit tested. Click here for information. 

CONTACT THE HEALTH CENTER FOR STUDENT CARE

Please email jgrisbau@tulane.edu with questions or concerns or call the downtown Health Center at 504-988-6929.
