Our client, an RN, was terminated from a hospital due to a drug diversion allegation; we obtained negative hair test to prove non-impairment.
Client registered nurse applied for a job with a hospital. Per protocol, she submitted to a urine drug screening. Her results were inconclusive due to her PH urine levels being high. This most likely was because client was dehydrated, but the hospital told her that this was reportable to the Florida Department of Health (DOH). The hospital tried to justify the referral because the drug result “did not meet their standards.” As a result, the nurse was unfairly reported to the DOH.
Chapman Law Group’s Florida healthcare professional licensing defense attorneys argued that an inconclusive drug test is not a basis for a practice act violation. We further contended that there is no probable cause for formal charges.
The case was dismissed without a finding of probable cause within five months.
