Rule 111-8-56-.15 - Health of Employees

Each home shall require that each employee receive a physical examination upon employment. The examination shall be in sufficient detail, with pertinent laboratory and X-ray data to insure that the employee is physically and mentally qualified to perform the job to which he is assigned. An annual physical examination thereafter is recommended. However, as a minimum, on an annual basis each employee will have a physical inspection to help insure freedom from communicable disease. As part of the annual examination or inspection a tuberculin skin test will be given to all previous negative reactors. If the skin test is positive, a chest X-ray will be required and the individual referred to his physician or appropriate health authority for possible prophylaxis treatment. Copies or certificates of physical examinations shall be kept in the employee's personnel folder.
