    UDS required by TPAPN

    I am a two time graduate of TPAPN and never had an observed urine at Quest where I did all my drug screens. I know a nurse that would go to another site (not Quest) and they observed all tests. Likely you will be told at the time you sign in to Reco...

    Assistance Program Tips

    Sage advice except I don’t agree that you will mess up in your first year. This is doable without relapse or messing up if a person reads and knows and follows the rules to a T.

    Dilute urine

    I had one dilute. They called it a non negative. Got a letter saying if it happened again they might have me see a nephrologist if I couldn’t explain it. Never happened again.

    Discussion at nurse's station

    The CNA breached HIPPA. The Casemanager and the nurse have to communicate information about the patient. The nurses station is a place where report is given. CNA is part of the team. She should be reprimanded and educated on HIPPA.

    Is this a breach?

    I work in a pedi clinic. An MA sent a group text that her son had a seizure and she needed someone to work for her. The following day I asked her if her son is ok as I heard he had a seizure from one of the MAs on the group text. She said yes. I aske...
