Clinical Laboratory Services and Safety

Laboratories should examine their processes to identify and manage risks that could lead to failures that would ultimately harm patients. For example, a patient can be harmed by an inappropriately performed venipuncture, or a false-positive or false-negative test result could cause a delay in diagnosis or inappropriate treatment.
