Medical Check Up Results With A History Of Pulmonary TB?
At night, a year and a half ago I suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, this disease I got when I first attended college. thank God after taking the medicine for 6 months, my TB was declared cured, and I had a check-up once a few months ago. And thank God, my TB was declared cured but still left scars, can these marks fail me during the medical examination before I came to work?
Medical check-up on the new employee acceptance test is indeed one of the tests that must be passed in addition to screening whether the worker is fit to work as well as for conducting early examinations and early prevention of diseases that arise in workers.
Regarding whether the former TB can fail someone during the job test cannot be answered with certainty because each company has different policies regarding the health conditions that the company wants. In addition, the type of work also has an effect where heavy work certainly requires different health conditions.
Other things can also vary in each condition where some companies provide special notes to workers or carry out further tests such as sputum checks to assess whether the infection is still active or not. It should also be noted that medical tests are not the only determinant of whether or not to be accepted for work.
