NBC Bay Area

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center has begun the process of testing hundreds of families for tuberculosis after announcing last week an employee who worked in the infant unit tested positive for the bacteria.

No new cases have been reported, but the hospital says tests will continue throughout the week.

Pediatric physician Dr. Kjartan Armann is waiting for the results of a tuberculosis test he gave a patient over the weekend. He says the patient visited a family member in the Mother & Infant Care Center at Valley Medical Center early last month.
