The Tyrone Hospital laboratory successfully completed a CLIA survey.
Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) are the United States federal regulatory standards that apply to all clinical laboratory testing performed on humans in the United States. An objective of the CLIA program is to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of test results regardless of where the test was performed.
Tyrone Hospital’s two day survey was completed by a Pennsylvania Department of Health Lab examiner and a United States Public Health Service CLIA Laboratory Consultant. All laboratory records and records in the nursing department that are associated with the laboratory such as transfusions and point of care testing including blood glucose, urine pregnancy testing and occult blood testing were reviewed and compliant with CLIA standards.
Hospital leaders held a pizza party for the hospital’s laboratory staff to recognize them for their outstanding work and the successful CLIA survey.
