If you’ve seen the media lately, it’s likely you’ve came across the video of the nurse and the police officer fighting over drawing a patient’s blood. That was an extremely uncomfortable and unfortunate situation that we do not wish on anyone. This is another reason why, at Texas Genetic Testing, LLC. we are so thankful for our team and our outstanding approach to toxicology testing. It is here that we collaborate with practicing physicians in finding the best treatment possible as well as performing the safest and effective toxicology testing possible.
Toxicology Testing Reasons
There are so many reasons why collecting and performing toxicology screenings are useful. In terms of employment, people may need a pre-employment screening or a randomized and routine drug screenings within a company. For patients, pain management clinics, substance abuse centers, and mental health care facilities all use toxicology screenings as a way to help ensure that a patient is following guidelines and no misuse is going on. Other things like criminal justice screenings, athletic programs, and forensic exams are great examples of why people within our community can use toxicology testing.
Toxicology Drug Testing
