I had a JCAHO inspector tell me about 6  years ago that I should have the temperature ranges on the charts but have never had anyone suggest the operational humidity...

I think this is interesting because I am hearing more and more that CLIA
inspectors are requiring these ranges on the chart. Is anyone else having
CLIA inspectors ding them about operational humidity and temperature ranges
on temperature charts? Some CLIA inspectors require room temperatures to be
recorded as well. Everyone's input would be appreciated. Thanks.

We do this monitoring for flow cytometry, there is a question for temp and
humidy for CAP so we record this daily, with a monitor that records the
temp 3x's./ day and the humidity.  You can set the monitoring times for any
interval you need.  Then I download this monthly as part of the qc.
