Case Result: Mitigating Evidence Proved No Impairment for LPN Who Accidentally Took Butalbital for Headache

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

Primary issue:
Client LPN tested positive for butalbital at a pre-employment drug screening, but the LPN claimed to not have been aware of what was ingested. LPN had been having a headache the day prior, or perhaps even the same day, and a friend gave the LPN a pill. LPN did not know what the pill was and just assumed it was ibuprofen or aspirin.

We argued accidental ingestion and denied impairment by providing mitigating evidence.

The case was dismissed without a finding.
