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).
