Raritan Bay Medical Center Earns AABB Accreditation
Date:8/1/2013

Perth Amboy, NJ (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

Raritan Bay Medical Center, with locations in Old Bridge and Perth Amboy, NJ, has been granted accreditation from the Advancing Transfusion and Cellular Therapies Worldwide organization (AABB) for its laboratory services.

The accreditation follows an intensive on-site assessment by specially trained AABB assessors and establishes that the level of technical and administrative performance within the medical center meets or exceeds the AABB standards. By successfully meeting these requirements, Raritan Bay Medical Center (RBMC) joins similar facilities located throughout the U.S. and around the world.

“The AABB’s accreditation procedures are voluntary,” Dr. Stacey L. Longo, RBMC chair, department of pathology, explained. “We sought AABB accreditation because this program assists facilities in achieving excellence by promoting a level of professional and technical expertise that contributes to high-quality performance and patient safety.” RBMC performed more than 600,000 laboratory procedures in 2012.

The accreditation program promotes the highest standard of care for patients and donors in all aspects of blood banking, transfusion medicine, hematopoietic, cellular and gene therapies, transplantation, and relationship testing. The AABB supports high standards for medical, technical and administrative performance, scientific investigation, clinical application and education. The resulting accreditation program specifically assesses quality systems and operational areas for compliance with standards. The basis for assessment includes compliance with Standards, Code of Federal Regulations and federal guidance documents. This independent assessment of operations assists in preparation for other inspections, and serves as a valuable tool to improve both compliance and operations.

Accreditation is granted for collection, processing, testing, distribution and administration of blood and blood components; hematopoietic progenitor cell activities; cord blood activities; perioperative activities and more.
