Do you have any specific details about incidents involving the mishandling of test results, altering test results, or improper collaboration with 3rd parties such as mediators/lawyers? If not any proof/evidence, just some more information would be great..
I'm dealing with a weird situation where out of the blue a staff person started claiming I was intentionally attempting to dilute my test samples by drinking lots of fluids even though my creatinine levels weren't any lower than previous tests she'd said were not diluted for the purposes of testing (actually, she changed her criteria after the mediator and my ex's lawyer complained that one of my tests had a pretty low level of creatine, just one, a fluke, since I take two/month and have all year).
So I started taking saliva tests instead to avoid getting told my tests weren't any good even though the levels in the samples weren't even 10% below the normal range, not even close to diluted enough to obscure any drug metabolites which might've been present, not that they were.
However, this staff person still thinks that I can't be trusted, and she told the mediator that she believed I was in
intentionally diluting my samples by drinking too much fluids prior to testing in order to cover up drug use - this 3.5 months after I switched to saliva tests after I got sick of having clean tests get tossed because the creatinine levels in the samples of two tests were just below 100, but still normal for the population at large and not diluted enough to change the test results re: drug use evidence.
The worst part, besides her discussing how terrible she thinks I am and how dishonest with the mediator (a statement he included in his report to the judge, by the way), she forwarded a test result to the mediator which I took on my own, not a random, since they hadn't been scheduled to start random tests for me again yet, and it wasn't associated with the court case, and I didn't authorize the results' release to anybody.
Well, the results came back positive for drug use, even though I KNOW I didn't use drugs - not that arguing that would do me any good, even if I hadn't been badmouthed by the staff person who's been chatting with the mediator - and if I had used drugs, why would I have voluntarily come in to take a drug test??
So she violated privacy policies of the company and relevant medical information confidentiality laws by providing that test result to the mediator, which would've been bad even if it wasn't dirty since it wasn't authorized by me that she do so. But once I realized she was the same person who's name was on the test I knew couldn't be correct since I hadn't been doing drugs, the same person who started claiming my earlier tests were all of a sudden too diluted even though comparable levels in earlier tests weren't considered diluted, AND she was the person who spoke to the mediator at length about the suspiscions she has about my tests' validity, even though there's no evidence to reasonably support such a negative opinion.
So I got curious and checked out the weird test result -- Not only was the case number not on it, it was listed as a "self-test", and it came back dirty, but it didn't include my last name, the first test in 20 that hasn't included both my first and last name on it, and it was dirty even though I know it couldn't have been and it got sent to the mediator by a staff person who expressed negative opinions about me to the mediator in the weeks prior.
I can't believe that she violated the privacy policies and confidentiality requirements asssociated with medical information so blatantly, and I'm appalled at her unprofessional behavior regarding her conversation with the mediator in which she made unsubstantiated and highly damaging comments about me. However, seeing other folks who have heard that Comp Medical staff collaborates with 3rd parties and alters tests results, among other nefarious activities, makes me wonder how often they get away with this and how it can be stopped or at least challenged.
I hope to heard from any of you who have heard about these practices (and aren't just one of the many, understandably!, annoyed customers forced to endure drug tests which are expensive, inconvenient, and humiliating, but folks with specific allegations of wrongdoing that can be substantiated by something specific besides a test result that didn't turn out in your favor :) :)
