An inverse relationship was found between the number of tuberculosis cases among the healthcare workers of the Sverdlovsk Region’s phthisiatric facilities and their length of service; the highest tuberculosis incidence was noted within the first 5 years of their work. There is a need for a package of preventive regime measures with laboratory monitoring the leading transmission factors, including the air of enclosed spaces (hospitals, dispensaries, laboratories, etc.).
