CLIA - In accord with the CLIA, the CLIA Program sets standards and issues certificates for clinical lab testing. CLIA defines a clinical laboratory as any facility which performs laboratory testing on specimens derived from humans for the purpose of providing information for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of disease or impairment, and for the assessment of health. An objective of the CLIA is to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of test results regardless of where the test was performed.
Assessors visit the facilities every 2 years to perform an on-site assessment and evaluate the testing labs against current CAP standards.
ACR accreditation means that our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care.
Our personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform medical imaging, interpret your images. Our equipment is state of the art appropriate for the exam you will receive, and our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
As Diagnostic Laboratories and Radiology continues to strive to be a leader in the field of post-acute care diagnostics and a strong clinical participant with our skilled nursing partners, we have developed strong relationships with the CDPH and CDC. Our DL team of skilled infection control nursing consultants, led by Dolly Greene, has joined the HAI Program leadership of CDPH and the CDC's NHSN program on a collaborative effort to decrease Clostridium difficile infection in the long-term care industry. With these strong partnerships DL will be able to provide more educational opportunities to our clients to align their infection control goals with that of these state and federal agencies.
