Re: CAP Inspection

From:Vinnie Della Speranza

We were just inspected yesterday. NO deficiencies!! hurray. the
pathologist inspection team leader described us as a "first class
This inspection team was extremely thorough. we had FOUR inspectors for
AP, not counting the IT person who also showed up. Two pathologists, a
histo supervisor and a cytology inspector
They followed the checklists closely and thoroughly, viewed every page
in every procedure and policy manual ( if you saw the volume of material
you'd understand the magnitude of this task) and they managed to overlap
each other so that we found ourselves covering some areas with them more
than once. one pathologist inspector wanted to see all ihc cases ending
in the digit "2" for the past month or two ( to avoid our selecting our
best cased for him to see)

I can't identify any one particular area for you that they gave greater
emphasis to because they were so thorough. after a hectic day it was
nice to receive their compliment.
