Making your Pre-Employment Health Screening Easy at AFC Urgent Care in Knoxville.
So you just got the call, and you’re finally landing your dream job! Congratulations!
However, the job isn’t yours just yet if your new employer requires pre-employment screening protocol. Luckily, your friendly neighborhood physicians at AFC Urgent Care walk-in clinics are ready to administer your pre-employment screenings and prepare you for success at their convenient urgent care location in Knoxville.
Depending on the specific nature of your new job, there may be different levels of physical ability your employer will ask you to demonstrate before you start your new position. This can range from simply passing a standard drug test to performing well on a general physical examination.
“By the time an employer decides to hire an applicant, a significant amount of time has been invested into the process,” explains Dr. Todd Rudolph, Medical Director at AFC Urgent Care. “An easy way to avoid preventable problems with a recently hired applicant, whether due to behavioral issues or physical inability, is to administer a health screening prior to finalizing the hire.”
Though employer requirements vary, typical portions of a pre-employment health screening include:
Drug screening: These tests are meant to alert your employer to the presence of drugs or alcohol in your system, and are tailored to test for a variety of non-prescription street drugs.
Vaccination screening: These tests confirm that you are up-to-date on all vaccinations required in your state for employment. This section of the exam is especially relevant if your job is in the health care profession.
Mental health screening: These tests are designed to confirm that you are mentally fit to perform the tasks associated with your position.
