Airborne Infection Isolation Room Practices

Patients with active TB should be assigned to single-patient rooms in which entry of HCWs and visitors is controlled.

All HCWs use a N95 disposable respirator.

Visitors may be offered respiratory protection and should be instructed by HCWs on the use of the respirator before entering.

The room has requirements for controlled ventilation, negative pressure, and air filtration.

Each isolation room should have a private bathroom.
