I would assume that there are random test to make sure you stay clean. If you were to accidentally give a patient the wrong dosage or wrong medicine altogether, they could potentially die.

I know that most places that initially drug test do random drug tests as well. For instance, both Wal-mart and Brookeshire's both do random drug tests after the initial hire. Wal-mart will do random drug tests in case of an accident on the job or if they have reasonable suspicion. A friend of mine works at Brookshire's and she says that they randomly give drug tests based on a computer generated name given. So better safe than sorry, I guess.
