UNT HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER SEMINARY CLINIC RECEIVES ACCREDITATION
FORT WORTH, Texas â?? The University of North Texas Health Science Center Seminary Clinic has been re-accredited by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection. This marks the third time the lab has successfully completed the accreditation process.
Barbara Clark, lab supervisor, was congratulated for the national recognition and the “excellence of the services being provided.” The clinic is one of the more than 6,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent that the governmentâ??s own inspection program
Inspectors examine the records and quality control of the laboratory for the preceding two years, as well as the education and qualifications of the total staff, the adequacy of the facilities, the equipment, laboratory safety, and laboratory management to determine how well the laboratory is serving the patient.
The College of American Pathologists is a medical society serving nearly 16,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the worldâ??s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The CAP is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective medical care.
