TYPICAL CLINIC COLLECTION SCENARIO
The clinic and hospital personnel usually are not forensic drug-test specimen collection experts, as collecting a urine specimen for a drug test is NOT the same simple process as collecting a urine specimen for a routine health urinalysis
The healthcare personnel are often overworked, leading to rushing and carelessness, and the specimen collection process and chain of custody may be mishandled
Clinic and hospital personnel only complete these procedures occasionally during any given week
If not completed correctly and legally for drug testing purposes, a positive test result that cost an employee their job will not hold up in a court of law.
These oversights can subject the employer to possible unlawful termination proceedings and very serious financial liability consequences
