Our hospital is having their CAP inspection in June. Upon going through our
checklist, I feel there are two question we do not have covered. We are a
small hospital and only do 1-2 autopsies a year. Could anyone let me know
what their facility does to meet the criteria for these two questions?

Are the findings of the postmortem examination used for correlative
clinicopathological teaching purposes designed to enhance the quality of
patient care?

Are autopsy findings that were clinically inapparent specifically documented
and communicated interdepartmentally?

Thanks for any help.
