Critical Points

* Traditional communicable diseases are increasing because of homelessness, inadequate childhood immunizations, and HIV-induced immunosuppression.

* Physician-initiated disease reports are essential to controlling communicable diseases.

* Failing to comply with reporting laws can be the basis for malpractice litigation and license revocation.

* Isolation and quarantine are still appropriate to protect the community from communicable diseases such as drug-resistant tuberculosis.
