TB Screening

TB screening must be completed 30 days prior to hire (according to this change)  It was previously 12 months prior to hire.  Why such the drastic change in time... this poses just another hurdle for hiring new employees that might be coming from another program or had a TB screening recently.  It has been hard enough to hire in a timely fashion and get background checks completed (which some are taking over two weeks to come back).  Can we meet somewhere in the middle like 6 mos, what is the basis of this change?
