Have you ever hired kasambahay with scarring seen in chest Xray? My cook had TB and she got the appropriate treatment for it, but my friend's cook had the same (chest xray showing scars) last year and this year her TB came back and the kid got infected :( Now I'm thinking if I should let my cook go because of the risk

No before I hire a kasambahay I let them undergo chest xray first as a safety precaution for my family...part of my hiring process- it's a learning from another mom, my SIL son was infected with TB from their kasambahay. I don't want that to happen to us.

I agree with Mommy Maila. Better to still consult the doctor. Always better to double check and be safe than sorry. Mahirap na irisk yung health ni baby.

Try mommy to check if active TB sya baka peklat lang sa xray nkita. Pnakasure kasi is to check their sputum by acid-fast baccili exam
