[Histonet] CAP inspections

I had my inspection in January. Can't speak for others, but, we received 
Accreditation with Accommodation on the last two inspections. This year we 
got slammed pretty hard. I think it's because of the incident last year 
concerning a lab in Maryland. CAP gave the lab an outstanding inspection, 
but there were many QA/QC issues that the some lab employees complained to 
    From what I was told, CAP had to explain itself to Congress.
    My QA program was torn apart (received compliments on the same programs 
during the last two inspections). Was written up because some of the 
temperature charts had missing dates (would you rather me pencil whip 
these?).Really took it the you know what because a couple of water cultures 
were not documented.
    As a matter of fact, we're giving a lecture on "Preparing for a CAP 
Inspection" at he NSH. It's number 99, the last lecture.
    Good luck. If I can help, just drop me a line.
