Confused Drug testing of infants in California

In the state of CA, do hospitals have the right to drug test all new mothers and infants without consent? If not, who gets tested?

As far as i know they can if they have reason to believe there is a problem for the child.

They cannot just randomly do so.

The chances of them testing your baby for absolutely no reason is slim to none. They don't drug test every baby at birth in any state---
The only reason they would do a drug screen on your newborn is if the baby was born showing qualities that it was addicted to drugs or that the mother was doing drugs while pregnant--

In California we only test if there is a reasonable suspicion of drug abuse.
