CLIA requirements are very clear for any testing personnel doing the
grossing. Be sure you read the CLIA law regarding grossing requirements and
be sure all of your grossing personnel not only meet these requirements but
that their qualifications are well documented-including updated resumes
indicating that they are CLIA eligible to gross. All grossing is a high
complexity task.
I would highly recommend you review the CLIA website for yourself and if you
have any questions, call your local CLIA office. I just went through my CLIA
inspection two weeks ago, feel free to contact me if you have any other
