[Histonet] CAP question on grossing
CAP question ANP.11610: If specimens are dissected by individuals
other than a pathologist or pathology resident, do such individuals
qualify as high complexity testing personnel under CLIA-88
My question: Does the dissection of any kind of tissue count as high
complexity testing? --even gallbladders, appendix, skin, etc? How
about specimens that do not require any dissection but are submitted
in whole--such as small biopsies, TURP's, etc?...Do individuals have
to be CLIA-88 qualified to put biopsies in?
If an individual does meet the CLIA-88 qualifications, does he have to
have a certificate from CLIA?
Thanks for any response. Our CAP inspection is coming up in a couple
