I got a letter from my work saying it is time for my annual TB skin test. I work for an HMO hospital, but I don't actually work in the hospital. I work in an outpatient clinic. I've been reading online trying to see if it is safe to do this test while PG and what I've read is mixed. Some people say it is perfectly safe; others say that it hasn't been tested but that it would be better than missing a TB diagnosis. Well, I don't have TB, and given how long it took us to conceive, I really don't want to do anything unnecessary while PG. I just don't feel like this is necessary. I never had one done with DS because I worked in private practice at the time and it wasn't required.
The letter states that if I do not comply, then I will be put on leave without pay. Shouldn't it be my right to opt out while PG? Any ideas? I could get a letter from my OB I suppose but my OB is not one of their docs, so who knows what they will say.
Any advice is appreciated!
