Don’t wait to complete your TB test, inservices and performance evaluation. FPR is a multi-step process, with different elements and deadlines.
The first step, TB screening, is now open and ends on Wednesday, Aug. 28. Remember, all Houston Methodist employees, including those who don’t have direct patient care responsibilities, are required to participate in TB screening.
New hires who participated in NEO before April 1 must repeat the TB test again. You can check your compliance in MARS. If you completed NEO after April 1, no action is required. For FAQs, click here.
