Two Leading Hospitals To Test Doctors For Drug Use

ABC News is reporting that Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and the Cleveland Clinic will now be randomly testing their anesthesiologists for drug use.  Given the history of addiction within the anesthesiology community, few anesthesiologists are surprised, says ABC news.A 2005 survey by the Cleveland Clinic estimated that 80 percent of anesthesiology residency training programs reported problems with drug-impaired doctors, and an additional 19 percent reported a death from overdose.
