Random drug test. I rode with another employee to the site (Methodist/leBonheur urgent care in OliveBranch MS.) We both took the test. I had trouble producing a sample after 3 hours and 3 trys THEY told me to leave and they would call it a refusal to submit to the test. I did not refuse I went three times but did not produce enough urine for their test. The very next day I was sent to a company doctor explaining I could not produce enough urine for a random drug test. After the doctor took a urine sample from me she told me I had a UT infection and prostatitis she prescribed me Cipro and follow up with urology. I went back to work. Now this lab said I left the premises without their authorization. They claim I was there two hours and FIFTY minutes instead of three hours Why are they splitting hairs here?.Before I left I asked them twice if there was anything else they wanted when they told me to leave (I was not watching the clock) they said no and the receptionist said no. Six days later they are saying I left against their orders. This drug lab didn t follow procedure. They should have told me to wait for another test or wait ten more minutes the full three hours. I assumed they were doing the clock watching when they said I was done. My Company Officer had to speak to the MRO and tell them another employee brought me to the test and witnissed the urine tech and the receptionist tell me to leave the premisis.The other employee filled out an affidavit and the MRO canceled the drug screen according to 49-CFR-part 40 I could have lost my job because of their incompetence Thank God I only missed three days of work getting their stupidity straightened out! EVERYONE BEWARE OF THESE FOLKS CAUSE THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO! Thanks for reading and I hope this was helpful to the next victim that goes there..

I'm sorry you had to go through this. Basically, they see everyone as "guilty" and they dont really care if you lose your job or not. They are getting paid to sit on their asses and do what they do and to them, if you cannot produce urine when they ask you to, you must be hiding something so they treat you with disrespect.
