Agency nurse with a positive DT result

Post by mlandolf » Thu Jul 09, 2020 2:01 pm

I have a temporary agency RN who screened negative on drug screens in the past through her agency that ended up with a positive drug screen when being vetted through our process. As part of our pre- higher requirement(institutional) another drug screen is necessary following our drug screening procedures. Her drug screen came back positive for cocaine and her agency would like a copy of the drug screen for their report to the state licensing board. Do they(Temp Agency) have the right to have a copy of the drug screen results?

The state licensing board may have a right to request and receive the test result directly from you. The agency doesn't, unless the donor has signed a release form authorizing you to give the result to the agency.
