A patient is admitted to the hospital from out of town. He is very sick and doesn’t really know what medications he takes at home. He’s lethargic, in and out of consciousness, and has no family to vouch for him. The nurse looks through his pockets and finds a multitude of medications, but some are even in another language. The patient’s vital signs are up and down with no relief from the hospital’s treatments. Wouldn’t it make sense to perform a drug screen on the patient? We thought so too. So the admitting doctor sends a drug screen to a lab that isn’t very reputable. Big mistake. Hours after the test is sent, they cannot find the specimen. The hospital sends another one. Apparently now the machine is down and they’ll have to wait until it’s running again. Frustrating!
Another call comes in and it’s the lab technician saying that they cannot run a certain screening on the urine sent, the hospital should send blood too. After many days of waiting, the results have come in…on another patient. That’s right, the patient still doesn’t have the results that he needs and unfortunately, a bad outcome is unavoidable. This is why when you choose to order drug testing, it’s important to order it from a reliable source. Pharmacogenetic Testing offers toxicology testing that is always reliable.
