Medical Review Officer
About the MRO
Physician review of drug test chain of custody procedures and test results. Federal guidelines require certification. Fleet Screen MRO’s are certified by the American Association of Medical Review Officers (AAMRO). In additional to federal requirements, several states require MRO review of positive test results prior to reporting to the employer.
Duties of an MRO:
- Review chain of custody forms for accuracy and completeness.
- Consultation with employee/applicants who test positive to determine if prescription drugs or relevant biomedical factors have caused a laboratory positive test.
- Consultation with laboratory certifying scientists and Adjudication of Non-negative tests.
A toxicological analysis can be done to various kinds of samples for drugs and alcohol (oral fluid/saliva, urine, hair). Fleetscreen utilizes the labs with the most up to date technology in forensic testing.
A recent survey by the New York Times Job Market research team found that 89 percent of job seekers exaggerate on their resumes. Fleetscreen can verify education, degree or degrees and upon availability the year, degree was awarded.
