Hep C in pre-employment physical
Hi all, is anyone else here a nurse who tested positive for Hepatitis C during a pre-employment physical? From what I understand (in California at least), testing positive with or without an active infection should not prevent employment, thanks to universal precautions. Hep B and MMR are the things they are most concerned about. However, I'm just wondering what the experience of others has been. Did it delay employment? Did they require you to follow up? Thanks!

Hi I have not had your experience however testing positive should not exclude your for employment, plus once you test positive they have to do a test to check for your viral load

HCV is listed under America with Disabilities and is protected..saying that it did not protect me from losing my govt job.  In my case I had relapsed from tx and could not tell my boss when I could work full time again, I was working 6 hours a day.

Good luck
