More than 700 newborns and about 40 health care workers at Providence Memorial Hospital, El Paso, Tex, were exposed to tuberculosis through a hospital employee who had an active case of the disease. The exposure occurred over a period of about a year, beginning in September 2013. The employee recently tested positive for the disease, and was placed on leave.
