On June 21st 2011, CAP (College of American Pathologists) arrived at CHOCs Metabolic Laboratory for the unannounced bi-annual survey. This survey is an all day process with an inspector reviewing our 300 standards. The inspector was quite impressed with the high complexity of the testing, as well as with the overall work and documentation performed in the lab.
Under the leadership of Dr. Jose Abdenur, Medical Director of Metabolic Disorders, and Metabolic Supervisor, Maree Burgess, PhD, the laboratory had a very successful survey!
The Director as well as the staff put in countless hours of preparation for the survey and assist in distinguishing CHOC as a Premier Childrens Hospital.
The entire staff is to be congratulated for a job well done!!
