    Fort Sanders Perinatology: The entire staff has trampled on my legal rights and lied about their legal obligation to do so. Ever heard of Tennessee Title 68, Chapter 5? No? That’s because it doesn’t exist. It was a bill that was introduced in January 2009 and rescended in March 2009; it was never passed into law. They are drug testing patients without concent and advising them that these tests are mandated by state law for every pregnant woman and that if they continue to fail tests, the staff are required to notify The Department of Childrens’ Services. After very little of my own investigation into this “law” I could not believe they are getting away with this! I feel violated, betrayed and pissed! I will be contating the director of the hospital in an effort to stop this outright abuse of women’s (patient’s) rights.

      There is a Title 68, Chapter 5 section, but it seems to just provide for the newborn eye prophylaxis and testing for metabolic defects, and testing of the woman for certain immunity and infectious/sexually transmitted diseases. I don’t know what Fort Sanders is or isn’t doing, but will try to doubly confirm the law issue.
