The word “regulations” has the capacity to send a chill down your spine and a sense of dread overcoming your whole mood. Unfortunately, regulations in the laboratory industry are something you will always have to deal with and there is no way around it.
It is important to stay up to date with the ever-changing regulations especially in the world of health care and laboratory companies. Nonetheless, regulations are put in place to guarantee accuracy and safety are provided to both the patients and staff. However, on a positive note, regulations don’t always have to be dreaded. In fact, they can be helpful if you know how to maneuver through them.
Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)
CLIA is legislation set in place for all laboratory testing centers to abide by and contains an amplitude of regulations and standards. The purpose of creating and setting forward CLIA was to ensure quality standards are followed for the safety and accuracy of patients and to assess, diagnose and treat diseases. Since 1988, which was when CLIA was enacted to the present day, there have been a number of changes regarding the rules and regulations for laboratories.
