    Tuberculosis

    The RISE Clinic at The Miriam Hospital is a tuberculosis clinic sponsored by the Rhode Island Department of Health. Clinic staff members are experienced in TB care and know how to safely handle contagious patients.

    The RISE Clinic has about 8,500 patient visits each year. Most patients whom the clinic treats are not contagious; most carry the TB infection, but are not ill from the disease. The clinic works to eliminate the chances that these patients will ever get ill from TB or be able to pass TB on to others.

    Our services

    The clinic provides an array of services for patients, depending on their individual needs.

    • Clinic outreach workers meet patients who are diagnosed with TB, escort them to the clinic and orient them to their treatment program immediately after they are discharged from the hospital.
    • The clinic also has a directly observed therapy program, where an outreach worker administers every dose of medication a patient receives. This enables the clinic staff to determine if a patient is having trouble with medication early on and verify that it is being taken.

    For more information about the RISE Clinic, please call 401-793-2427.
