Need Policy Help

Published

I am looking for a policy for drug testing for obstetrical patients. Does your facility institute testing only when there is an index of suspicion or do you test all OB's? If you have a policy you could share, I would greatly appreciate it.

Make sure you are aware of your state law on the topic. Each state is different.

We test all patients without prenatal care or limited care. The state also will arrest mothers whose babies test positive at birth.
