Lab passes COLA inspection with flying colors
by Alma Mayocdan-Tomamao, AMT, MT(ASCPi)
Once again, the LCHD laboratory passed the COLA inspection on January 10, 2013 earning 99 percent out of a possible 100 percent. The lab is now accredited for another 2 years until 2015. COLA is a private, non-profit accrediting organization and is approved by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) to accredit labs on their compliance to (and even beyond) standards as set forth by CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments). Accreditation certifies a laboratory’s adherence and commitment to quality standards in ensuring accuracy, reliability and timeliness of patient test results. It also bears down on the laboratory’s existence to operate and offer services to patients.
The inspection covered all facets of laboratory analysis including collection of specimen, qualifications of personnel, quality control, quality assurance, accuracy of resulting and instrumentation.
The laboratory staff wants to thank everyone at LCHD as this accreditation was achieved not only with the efforts of the laboratory alone but also with the continued support from the LCHD administration and all LCHD departments.
Lynn County Hospital District is pleased to announce that we are growing in every department. Upgrades have been purchased for Lab and Radiology departments, enhancing the services that we can provide. We are also adding additional features to our EMR (Electronic Medical Record). These new features include a Pharmacy module which is the first step of adding medication into the EMR.
