Drug & Alcohol Testing (Including After Hour Testing)

In by JetMedicalCenter

Drug and alcohol abuse constitute a significant problem in the workplace, contributing to low productivity, poor job performance, increased accidents, incidents of theft, and decreased employee morale. Drug-abusing employees acquire 300% higher medical costs [U.S. Chamber of Commerce] and are five times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim [U.S. Dept. of Justice, DEA].

Jet Medical Center® is both a NIDA-approved collection site for urine drug screenings and an HRS-approved collection site for all State of Florida Drug Free Workplace specimens. Certified Breath Alcohol Technicians are available in our clinics and on-site. We use only SAMSHA Certified Laboratories to process our results.

By implementing a drug-free workplace program, Florida employers may be eligible for premium credit under Florida Statute 440.102. In cases of intoxication or drug use, workers’ compensation coverage may be denied. Random selection and online results available.

Jet Medical Center® encourages drug screen testing and as an employer service, drug screen testing associated with first visit injury care will be at NO CHARGE!

24 Hours Substance Abuse Testing

When an accident occurs in the workplace and you need to determine if drugs or alcohol were partially to blame or if an employee appears to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, timing is of the essence. At Jet Medical Center®, we offer  mobile, on-site 24-hour drug and alcohol testing to accommodate employers, legal professionals, and others who need immediate testing service and when appropriate, with instant results.

The FMCSA requires that employers conduct alcohol tests as soon as practicable following an accident – generally within 2 hours and no later than 8 hours from the time an accident occurred. Drug tests must be administered within 32 hours.

To schedule substance abuse testing during office hours (M-F, 7am-6pm), simply visit our office or call (352) 629-9100.  To access after-hours testing, please call (352) 355-9308 and click here to view our policy and procedures.

Drug Screen Results

Once the decision to drug screen employees is determined, choosing the right facility to collect, process and report your result is equally important. Our Medical Review Officers (MRO’s) will advise you regarding guidelines for dealing with employees who have tested positive. For instant drug screening, we guarantee confidential results in less than 24 hours (negative only, positive results usually require an additional 24 to 48 hours for confirmatory testing). Our computer system assists us in maintaining detailed reporting instructions and employee drug screen results. Results are initially reported by telephone and final, confirmed results are subsequently sent through the mail or by encrypted PDF email.
