The last inspection I had the inspector told me it might be a good idea
to document the humidity levels.  I was already documenting the room

I think this is interesting because I am hearing more and more that CLIA
inspectors are requiring these ranges on the chart. Is anyone else
CLIA inspectors ding them about operational humidity and temperature
on temperature charts? Some CLIA inspectors require room temperatures to
recorded as well. Everyone's input would be appreciated. Thanks.

For those of you that have to go thru a CLIA inspeciton, I had mine
yesterday and came across a issue, that in my 15 years of histology have
never came across so I thought that I would share with you all.  The
inspector that I had opened up the owners manuals of my equipment
pot, water-bath, embedding center, etc) and looked at the manufactors
recommendations for room temp and room humidity.  She was going to ding
on not haveing those ranges on my QC chats, but I changed them while she
here.  So if you do not have those ranges on your QC charts I would
recommened it.
