Then, after reading the following case study scenario, answer the questions about the case study.

Tuberculosis is a communicable disease of worldwide concern. Adams County generally has very low rates, but three new cases, two migrant worker family members and a motel clerk, have been documented in the western part of the county around the town of Weston. This part of the county is agricultural, but Weston is less than 1/2 mile from Interstate 44, which has a heavy commercial traffic flow. There are three inexpensive motels along the highway route, in addition to fast food and gasoline convenience stores.
You are the community health nurse who is doing the epidemiological follow-up on the three cases of TB identified in the Weston area.

  1. What are some of the questions you will ask as you assess the individuals with TB disease?
  2. What are you most concerned about regarding the spread or transmission of TB?
