Why are people in the medical field most susceptible to prescription drug abuse? Is it just a simple matter of availability? That seems too simplistic a reason. Given the fact that everyone seems to be aware that this is a growing problem in the industry would it be helpful or perceived as an invasion of privacy to drug test the personnel regularly? I feel like it's a tad bit of both. However, doesn't one outweigh the other? Making sure those that are drug addicted are not treating patients seems more important than how one may feel about the inconvenience/invasion.
