Infection prevention and control guidelines
11. Disease surveillance and outbreak response
Occasionally a patient who visits the practice will later be found to have a significant transmissible disease (eg tuberculosis). State/territory health authorities must be notified, to enable tracing of contacts of the infected patient.
To facilitate appropriate counselling, quarantine and post-exposure prophylaxis, practices may be required to identify non-immune staff on duty and other patients present at the time, who may have been exposed to the infectious patient. This may entail checking staff rosters, staff immunisation records and patient appointment records.
