PNA Pre-Employment Medical Examination

Nothevej International Hospital

From January 1st 2013 Nitiporn's PNA can offer a comprehensive "Pre-Employment" Medical Examination to all clients hiring a Nanny. The schedule is designed specifically for PNA and examinations will be carried out at Nothevej International Hospital, Rattanathibet Road, Namwongwang, Bangkok. The full cost of 3,200THB will be needed in advance and the examination will include the following:

  1. Physical examination.
  2. Blood type confirmation.
  3. CBC - a complete blood count. The cells that circulate in the bloodstream are generally divided into three types: white blood cells (leukocytes), red blood cells (erythrocytes), and platelets (thrombocytes). Abnormally high or low counts may indicate the presence of many forms of disease, and hence blood counts are amongst the most commonly performed blood tests in medicine, as they can provide an overview of a patient's general health status.
  4. FBS - fasting blood sugar test is mainly used in screening for any prediabetes or diabetes. In people already having diabetes, blood glucose monitoring is used with frequent intervals in the management of the condition.
  5. HBsAg - test for Hepatitis.
  6. HIV Ag/Ab - test for HIV.
  7. Urine Analysis - one the most common methods of diagnosis. The examination will incorporate:
  8. Urine test strip - A urine test strip can quantify:

    • Leukocytes - with presence in urine known as leukocyturia.
    • Nitrite - with presence in urine known as nitrituria.
    • Protein - with presence in urine known as proteinuria, albuminuria, or microalbuminuria.
    • Blood - with presence in urine known as hematuria.
    • Specific gravity.

    Microscopic Examination

    A urine sample is examined under a phase-contrast microscope using a Neubauer counting chamber. The numbers and types of cells and/or material such as urinary casts can yield a great deal of information and may suggest a specific diagnosis.

    • Hematuria - associated with kidney stones, infections, tumors and other conditions.
    • Pyuria - associated with urinary infections.
    • Eosinophiluria - associated with allergic interstitial nephritis, atheroembolic disease.
    • Red blood cell casts - associated with glomerulonephritis, vasculitis, or malignant hypertension.
    • White blood cell casts - associated with acute interstitial nephritis, exudative glomerulonephritis, or severe pyelonephritis.
    • (Heme) granular casts - associated with acute tubular necrosis.
    • Crystalluria - associated with acute urate nephropathy (or acute uric acid nephropathy, AUAN).
    • Calcium oxalatin - associated with ethylene glycol toxicity.

  9. Chest X-ray - Chest x rays show the structures in and around the chest. The test is used to look for and track conditions of the heart, lungs, bones, and chest cavity. For example, chest x-ray pictures may show signs of pneumonia, heart failure, lung cancer, lung tissue scarring, or sarcoidosis.
  10. Syphilis - tests carried out by the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory.
