Marlette Regional Hospital Laboratory Receives CAP Accreditation
Marlette Regional Hospital’s (MRH) Laboratory and Cardiopulmonary Blood Gas Lab has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection of the laboratory and cardiopulmonary departments.
The Laboratory and Cardiopulmonary staff were advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. The laboratory at MRH is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide.
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examined both departments records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examined staff qualifications, as well as the equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the departments. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.
CAP is the worldwide leader in laboratory quality assurance. The College advocates accountable, high-quality and cost-effective patient care.
Please join Marlette Regional Hospital in congratulating Lab Manager Linda Bush, MT, Director of Ancillary Services/ Cardiopulmonary Manager Katrina Pandrea Moorehead, LRT, RRT-NPS, CCT, CRAT, CPFT, and all of their department staff for their exceptional efforts in assuring high-quality laboratory services for patients throughout the Thumb Region!
