King’s Daughters Medical
Center recently recognized two Laboratory Services Team Members as “key
operators” for completing a multi-step training module.
Belinda Davidson, medical
technologist and hematology supervisor; and Kim Moore, medical lab technician;
“went above and beyond” routine responsibilities to expand their knowledge and
develop skills in order to diagnose and repair the very delicate lab
instruments. Such on-site evaluations allow for reduced instrument downtime and
can save labs both time and money, said Shawn Boggs, KDMC Lab director.
Davidson and Moore attended
an off-site basic training and participated in additional training at the
King’s Daughters campus.
“A lab that takes on the
initiative to certify key operators is a commitment to success and excellence –
this takes KDMC to the next level,” said Katalin Kovacs, M.D, medical director
of the Medical Center’s Laboratory Services.
“Knowing that our
state-of-the-art equipment can be monitored on-site creates a new comfort zone
for us,” said Boggs.
The King’s Daughters Lab is
a CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) certified facility,
operating in accordance with state and federal guidelines; is College of
American Pathologists accredited; and accredited by the American Association of
Blood Banks. Also, King’s Daughters’ main laboratory is accredited by the
College of American Pathologists (CAP).
