RE: [Histonet] JCAHO questions for histology


Are you under CAP?  If you are JCAHO will most likely skip the histo lab, at least that has been our experience.  If not, take a couple of days off.  Just kidding.  Since I've always worked in labs that were under CAP I have not had to endure a JCAHO inspection.  Good luck.

Subject: [Histonet] JCAHO questions for histology

I run a small VA histo lab in Oregon.  I am getting my first JCAHO
inspection in two weeks.  I have been around for these inspections in the
past, but most questions were directed at the lab manager.  I am the sole
tech in histo, and am wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what
questions I can expect.  I know they will be doing tracer methodology etc in
the main lab, but I am not sure what to expect in histo.  I have printed the
2004 JCAHO survey guide and the frequently asked questions, but I find
almost nothing that applies to me.  Any ideas??

Thank You!
