At Cincinnati Childrens we require the person to have a medical assessment to be cleared working on this drug.
If cleared to work we ask the manager to watch them carefully. We do not do random drug screens.
Thank you for your email.

We have a candidate for hire which is a known methadone user. This candidate does have a legal prescription for the drug but it makes me alittle nervous. We are considering doing random drug screens for a period of time just to be assurred that this person is not taking anything not prescribed. The candidate relates that the methadone is prescribed for severe pain and has been on it for the past year. Any thoughts and past experiences with this would be greatly appreciated.
