  • Shortage of Tuberculin Skin Testing (5/23/13)
          Due to a nationwide shortage of testing solution required for tuberculin skin testing, the Hawaii State Department of Health has announced the temporary suspension of tuberculosis (TB) clearance requirements. Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 164, requires TB clearance for school personnel, students, food handlers, and workers in health care, domiciliary care, daycare, and residential care facilities. Effective April 11, 2013, the state will not restrict attendance at work or school due to the absence of a TB clearance.

  • Parent Alert on Hand Sanitizers (5/1/12)
    News from the Healthroom:
          Would you drink hand sanitizer? The idea may sound repulsive to most people, but U.S. doctors are warning parents of what may be a fast-growing dangerous trend after several local teenagers were hospitalized in separate incidents with alcohol poisoning from drinking the soapy stuff.
          Hand sanitizer, which has 62% ethyl alcohol, produces a potent drink that can cause alcohol poisoning. Some of the cases involve teenagers who used salt to separate out the alcohol. For more information and articles, please Google: Drinking Hand Sanitizer.
