For the record..I don't use drugs. I was wondering though if health care workers get tested? I was surprised recently to find out that teachers don't get drug tested. I don't know why I was surprised I just thought they would be subject to it. I guess I find it sort of weird that some places do and some don't.
What is your opinion>?

i know as an rn i was drug tested all the way through cna & rn schools and when i applied for work at my current facility. if there was any question that i was intoxicated at work, i would be drug tested without hesitation. actually about a month ago a physician came in to do his rounds drunk....since i do like this doc i did not have the heart to mention this to my supervisor or anyone...just a personal bias you might say...but even still i was appalled at this action on his part.:smiletea2:
ps. if we as health professionals are tested, teachers should suffer the humiliation of a drug test too degnabbit!
