How to Ace Your Lab's Competency Assessments and Avoid Common Citations

Competency assessment is one of the most frequently cited deficiencies during laboratory inspections, which means ensuring your competencies meet all CLIA requirements and are scheduled correctly can be a significant challenge. Understanding who is qualified to perform these assessments and how to adequately document your activity is paramount to maintaining compliance and avoiding common citations.

Join us at 12:00 PM, Thursday, April 27, as we dive into best practices for optimizing competency assessments alongside Leah Westover, MPH, MLS(ASCP), who serves as Director of Sales for MediaLab. Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with Lighthouse Lab Director Dr. Lori Millner, PhD, NRCC, to learn more about her insights into running a successful competency program.

• Which individuals within your lab are qualified to perform competency assessments.
• Most common citations and how to avoid them.
