When you go to take the test, be sure you tell the administrating party what medications you are taking. They can then adjust things so that you do not receive a false positive. Good luck on the job.. D

I new I was HIV pos when I applied and got a job in New Orleans Oscner Health Center, I was given a blood screen, but they never did say anything to me. Perhaps they were just testing for drugs, I am not sure if they were testing for HIV at that time. I got a feeling if you tested positive for grass /canabis that would be a problem.
