Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Main Clinical Laboratory was recently awarded accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of an onsite inspection. The Hospital’s laboratory was recognized and congratulated by CAP for the excellence of the services they provide.
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control process for the preceding two years. CAP also examines laboratory staff qualifications, as well as the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the laboratory. The stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.
