The integrity and accuracy of a drug test result relies on the Medical Review Officer. The MRO is crucial to determining if a test is negative, positive, adulterated or invalid. An important step in this process is to have a qualified licensed physician who, as the MRO, will review and evaluate all test specimens after each test has been analyzed by a Certified Laboratory.
The primary responsibility of the MRO is to receive laboratory-confirmed urine drug test results; determine whether there is a legitimate medical explanation for a laboratory-confirmed positive, adulterated, or substituted result; review and report all verified results to the employer in a timely and confidential manner.
Having an MRO review and verify drug tests prevents unexplained positive test results and reduces employers' liability while administering a Drug Free Workplace Program.
