Does anyone know if they drug test the mother or newborns after delivery at Jackson General or Regional?

Well if it was a real "mom" there wouldn't be a reason to, but yes, every mother gets a pee test and if she fails the baby has to have test. Any female that does drugs or drinks while pregnant should be forced to have their tubes tied!!!

A drug test is performed ONLY if the doctor has reason to believe the mother is using drugs. OR if the newborn is having complications associated to being caused from drug addiction.

nazism is all it is. If they drug test my wife, the state of tn will be paying the bill, not me or my insurance.

They only test if suspucious that maybe there is something in her or the babies system but they do bill you and your insurance tennessee isn't gonna pay for that. But I think its funny they can drug test someone over suspicion of drugs but no one blames a doctor when a woman with a normal pregnancy all of a sudden has a mentally challenged baby because of a mistake the doctor made that he won't admit to. It isn't I just the womans fault all the time

You ar absolutely correct. The medical institutions today have free will to do whatever they want and then charge you for it. Wish I had a business like that. However, they might charge me, but I will not pay! Its just another scam to get more money. Its always about the money. Personally I think the doctors should be drug tested monthly.

They can take any hair on your body. There are hairs in more places than your head and private areas, they can use one from any of the other places. And if you go in completely free of hair that is suspicious, especially being a woman and having no hair on your head.

Personally I think crack heads need to to stop bringing innocent children into this world. I personally am tired of paying for children I don't birth!! I think they should be forced to have their tubes tied. That would be money well spent and decrease the amount of welfare needed in the future. Get clean, get a job that you can afford to support a child THEN bring them into the world. It's not fair to a child or the people forced to pay for and raise them.

I don't work in Jackson but am a L&D nurse. Everyone in labor is drug tested at our hospital. As long as your clean or have a script for something that may show up you have nothing to worry about!!

I recently adopted a baby and she was born at Jackson general... Her birth mother was drug tested only because the baby showed signs of withdrawal at birth. They even pulled the baby's first bowel movement and sent it to Memphis to be tested... It was all negative but the only reason they pulled one was because the pediatrician was suspicious of drug use. By the way the fecal test on the baby goes back to 12 weeks gestation.

Why are you so worried. If you are pregnant do not use drugs. That is an innocent baby!!!!!!!!!! If you do, you need to be arrested immediately after childbirth for child abuse!!!!!!!!!!
