NH bill to require hospital workers to get drug tests criticized

New Hampshire Union Leader, February 27, 2013

A bill requiring health care workers to be randomly drug tested four times a year is not the answer to preventing the kind of drug diversion alleged at Exeter Hospital last summer, a House committee was told Tuesday. Nursing home operators, a physician, the state Hospital Association and the state American Civil Liberties Union all criticized the bill as expensive and government overreach, while the lone supporter of House Bill 597 was the president of a drug testing company.
