Need a Post-Accident Drug Test?
Coastal Drug Testing can travel to a hospital/emergency room or roadside to perform a drug or alcohol test required by workers compensation insurance or a company’s drug free workplace policy.
A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen such as urine, hair, blood, breath, finger nail and oral fluid/saliva. The common procedure for a drug test is to have a donor provide a specimen to a drug testing collection specialist, complete a chain of custody form and then the collector will send by carrier the specimen to a laboratory for analysis and a determination if the specimen is negative or positive. Although there many laboratories in the United States which provide drug testing analysis, it is recommended that only a laboratory that is SAMHSA Certified is to be used when determining a drug testing result.
A drug testing specimen which has an initial positive result will be sent for additional testing through a screening process called a confirmation test, once the confirmation test has been completed a final result will be reported.
In most cases a drug test result by the laboratory will be sent to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) for review and verification and in the event that the result is positive the MRO will attempt to contact and interview the donor to determine if there is any lawful or legitimate reason why the specimen has an illegal drug or prescription drug in the donors system.
Drug testing is a valuable tool for employers who wish to maintain a drug free workplace environment and State and Federal courts have consistently upheld the rights of the employer to be a drug free workplace and take disciplinary action when an employee has a positive drug test.
