MRO Services - Medical Review Officer

An essential part of the drug testing program is the final review of results. A positive laboratory test result does not automatically identify an employee or job applicant as an illegal drug user. The Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a physician that is trained to validate the results. The MRO will:

    • Review the information on the specimen form and determine that the information is forensically and scientifically supportable
    • Interview the donor when required
    • Make a determination regarding the test result
    • Report the verified result to the agency (employer)
    • Maintain records and confidentiality of the information
