Case Result: Negative Hair Test Proves Nurse Accused of Drug Diversion Was Not Impaired

Registered Nurse

Primary issue:
Client RN was terminated from a hospital as a result of a drug diversion allegation. The hospital found some narcotic discrepancies and asked the RN to take a drug test. Fearing criminal consequences from non-disclosure, the RN admitted that testing would produce a positive result for several drugs, some of which the RN had a script for. The RN was consequently reported to IPN but rejected enrollment and a Florida Department of Health (DOH) investigation ensued.

We denied the allegations and obtained negative hair test to prove the RN was not impaired.

The case was subsequently dismissed due to lack of evidence.
