The laboratory at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota has just earned accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP.) The results came after a rigorous on-site inspection. The CAP says the federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program as being equal to or even more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
“Our team works incredibly hard each day to serve our patients. We focus on quality, safety and we have a personal approach to everything we do. I am very proud of our group for achieving this distinction,” said Sheila Renfro, Laboratory Director.
The accreditation process is designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all patients. During the accreditation, process inspectors examine the lab’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and overall management.
