What is a Child Caregiver Infectious Disease Profile Test?

A Child Caregiver Infectious Disease Profile test helps those who are, or may be, in contact with children be aware of any health-related issues which may be present that could ultimately affect their health or the health of a child. It tests patients for a series of communicable diseases, offering results which are typically part of the hiring process in healthcare and childcare facilities, as well as by those who hire home-based childcare workers (i.e. nannies).

Who May Need a Child Caregiver Infectious Disease Profile Test?

Anyone who is interested in beginning a career in childcare, or who already works in the childcare field, will benefit from this series of tests. Not only do the results provide a clean bill of health to a potential or current employer, they also give an individual confidence in their health status related to communicable diseases and general wellbeing. Some employers may require these tests be performed within a certain amount of time prior to, or soon after, employment.

What Should I Expect from My Child Caregiver Infectious Disease Profile Test?

The Child Caregiver Infectious Disease Profile test consists of blood tests as well as having a patient supply a urine sample to the laboratory for testing. It is important the urine sample is the first-void urine of the day, or that the patient avoids urinating for at least 1 hour prior to having the specimen collected in order for the testing to be effective. Results are typically given to the patient in 5 business days, though there may be exceptions if retesting or confirmation testing is required. After the tests have been performed, speak to your doctor regarding your results to get more information on how they concern you and your health specifically.
