No one wants to receive an inspection letter containing a list of their lab’s deficiencies. With a limited amount of time, resources, and staff, labs can find themselves overwhelmed and underprepared to respond to these deficiencies. Accumen can assist during this stressful time and help your lab to respond appropriately to avoid further repercussions.
Why are Quality & Compliance Such a Challenge in Labs?
- Today’s environment presents particular challenges with labor shortages.
- Hospitals are under constant pressure to reduce costs; therefore, laboratories need to be able to meet regulatory burdens in a cost-effective manner.
- Having the right set of knowledge and skills are an essential part of implementing necessary processes to comply with often complex regulatory guidelines.
- Regardless of the environment, regulatory readiness must remain a priority at all times.
