A friend just called, freaking out, asking me about how to beat a drug test. She’s having surgery on a tendon in her hand, and the nurse called and told her to be ready to give a urine sample when she gets there. It will be outpatient surgery, with general anesthesia.
This worries her because she occasionally uses marijuana. For reasons I’d rather not get into, it is very important to her to keep this a secret. I think it’s a really bad idea to fake the test, but I need to be able to reassure her that it’s not a drug screen, or that the results wont come back to bite her later.
Anyway onto the questions:
What is the urine test for?
Can she request the results not go into her medical record?
How accurate is a hospital drug screen? Could she later deny the accuracy of said test?
