Warren General lab passes FDA inspection

Warren General Hospital recently received an official report stating the laboratory passed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspection without any deficiencies.

Holli Wolfe, director of patient and public relations at the hospital, said, “WGH is very proud of our community hospital and the excellent service we continually provide. Passing the FDA inspection without any violations strongly indicates the quality WGH offers.”

The inspection, which was conducted on April 9 -10, focused on compliance, safety, accurate documentation, and up to date policies and procedures.

“WGH goes through multiple inspections each year from a variety of federal and state health care agencies. The inspections performed, make certain we are following the standards of care that are required. Here at Warren General our goal is to not only meet the standards of care, we want to exceed them. Two of the top goals at WGH are quality of care and patient safety. The staff at WGH does an exceptional job providing that care and ensuring the safety of all our patients. The high ratings received during the multiple inspections throughout the year signify the level of care we provide to our community,” said John Papalia, the hospital’s CEO.

The FDA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Under it are regulations that ensure safety is maintained within public health facilities. The FDA is required to perform inspections at all facilities on a regular basis.
