TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

(With information from Tift Regional Hospital)

The people you never see in a hospital are some of the most important ones in your treatment. They are the ones who run the tests your doctor uses to see what's really going on inside you, so he or she can determine the course of treatment that's going to help.

Unless you come to the hospital with an obvious injury, laboratory technologists are the ones who figure out what's happening with your blood, your enzymes, your organs, and a hundred other things you don't think much about.

And their results have to be right.

Tift Regional Hospital says its Lab is among the best, and so does the College of American Pathologists (CAP). That group has renewed its accreditation of the Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) Laboratory.    

The certification is based on a recent on-site inspection, the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years passed inspection by auditors from CAP.

CAP inspectors examined laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record and overall management.

The federal government recognizes the CAP laboratory accreditation program as being equal or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.

CAP provides accreditation surveys for more than 7,700 laboratories and proficiency testing for 20,000 laboratories worldwide.

"We could not take the rigorous steps needed for accreditation if wasn’t for the great team of skilled and dedicated people we have in the TRMC Laboratory," said medical director Dr. Jessica Beier.  "In achieving this CAP accreditation, TRMC has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care and quality."

CAP is a medical society that serves more than 18,000 physician members and the global laboratory community. It is the world's largest association composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists and is the worldwide leader in laboratory quality assurance.

CAP advocates accountable, high-quality, and cost-effective patient care.
