The outcome can vary depending on how well run your laboratory is and who is doing the inspection (and how detailed oriented they are).
You have to be sure that fundamental aspects of your lab are up to date, and usually a small non-compliant aspect could be expected. The most important thing is that anything that is found that needs to be corrected is both explained and corrected.
Safety is important and anything that is a regulation that has to do directly with patient care is OK. Cofidentiality issues are important, as any paper-trail on diagnosis and the kind.
Take your time to go, CAP list in hand, reviewing all the headings, and if you find one that is in no compliance and cannot be taken care off before the inspection, you should be the one to point it out and not wait for the inspectors to find it out. Come "always clean" with any problem.
Relax, take a deep breath, be calm and everything will be OK.

Hello All:

I am due for a CAP inspection later this month. Would any of you mind sharing your last CAP experiences both positive and negative? Thanks so much.
