The chief of the Prachuap Khiri Khan department of public health has ordered province-wide urine checks for drugs on 3,500 health personnel.
 
The move comes in the wake of a case where a nurse who turned out to be a drugs dealer stashed amphetamines and ganja in Prajuab Hospital's ICU unit and at her flat. 
 
Dr Samart Thirasak has ordered the urine tests be completed by May 15th. Army units will be mobilized along with protection agency personnel to help with the screening. 
 
In addition Daily News reported there will be searches of property throughout the province at hospitals, clinics and private addresses. 
 
The Thai public were shocked with the arrest of Duangkamon Phisutsiang, 30 and her 37 year old boyfriend who were dealing in millions of baht worth of Ya Ba, ice and ganja.
 
Quantities of the drugs were found in her locker in ICU as well as at the nurse's quarters.
