How very sad that they don’t trust their nurses , even after a drug test…When I was working in a hospital on the night shift, we had a nurse that the rest of us suspected of abusing drugs. She was constantly wanting to give patients pain meds, we would frequently find her asleep in the bathroom, she would go missing during her shift. She was finally caught and sent to rehab. When she returned, they transferred her to a day job in a cardiac cath lab…..The reason: she abused drugs because our unit was too stressful for her!…The rest of us couldn’t believe it. We felt they rewarded her bad behavior because most of us would of jumped at that position……Go figure….
