Drug Testing

Drug Testing

for pre-employment, workplace, narcotic treatment, transitional living facilities for released offenders, or facilities for the treatment of alcohol and drug abuse.

  • If you wish to conduct drug testing for pre-employment, workplace, narcotic treatment, transitional living facilities for released offenders, or facilities for the treatment of alcohol and drug abuse follow the instructions below.
     

  • These instructions do NOT apply to forensic testing performed by law enforcement agencies, court ordered SAPTA certified programs, or self-testing.
     

  • There is no CLIA application necessary for non-medical testing.

Instructions: Before You Begin Drug Testing

  1. You must have a Laboratory Director who is an MD, DO, podiatrist, or chiropractor.

  2. You must complete the Laboratory Exemption application found on the Medical Laboratory Website.

  3. Your Laboratory Director must sign the application, with that signature notarized.

  4. All testing personnel must submit a Clinical Laboratory Personnel Certification application.

  5. Your lab must have a written safety policy and an eye wash station.

  6. The Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance must conduct an on-site visit and approve your application before you may begin testing anyone.

  7. Be sure to use kits that have been classified as ‘waived’.

Instructions: Three Easy Steps to Conduct Drug Testing

  1. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This includes monitoring and recording the temperature where the kits are stored.

  2. Conduct a competency assessment for each person who performs the test, and write it down prior to testing anyone.

  3. Conduct an accuracy check on each test by writing down the control results. Built in controls are acceptable.
