Drug Tests

 Hello Everyone! I was wondering when you run drug test on employees. Is it suspicion based, random, or after an incident happens? Thank you!

    We do pre-employment and reasonable suspicion (which could be after an incident or injury if there was reasonable suspiction). Terra Albert Deming Director of Human Resources Otsego Memorial Hospital 825 N. Center Gaylord, MI 49735 Phone: 989-731-7761 e-mail: [email protected]

      >>> "Girard, Steven K." 06/09/16 16:37 PM >>>Most of my healthcare clients do pre-employment, reasonable suspicion and mandatory testing. The mandatory testing is typically limited to a work-related injury or accident, but more recently have included incidents involving significant injury to a patient or upon promotion to certain positions. Random testing is more rare (and expensive), but certain clients believe strongly in its effectiveness. Remember, if you are a public sector employer (for example, a county hospital or county medical care facility), drug testing is limited to “safety-sensitive” employees and subject to constitution protections.

      We screen upon hire, reasonable suspicion, and quarterly random. We have the option to run for accidents/incidents, but these are rarely used, as consistency is important.
