Why choose C&C Clinical Laboratory Consulting?

A little “about us”.  C&C Clinical Laboratory Consulting is Carol Vaughn and Cathy Bohrer, two laboratory technologists with a passion for quality in the lab.  We are not a large corporation who manage every aspect of lab or even every type of lab.  We are two individuals who saw a need for laboratory guidance in the smaller POL and clinic style laboratories who often do not employ certified lab personnel.  These labs often do not realize their non-compliance to regulations until it is too late and they have failed an inspection.  We can help labs either recover from these failed inspections, or set them up right before they ever face a first inspection.  Over the years we have developed certain specialties highlighted below.  You can see a more complete listing of our services on the services tab.

Carol specializes in POL’s and clinics who have failed inspections and find themselves under Immediate Jeopardy with CLIA or under the STAT team with COLA.  She has written successful POC’s for CLIA as short as two pages, to as long as 158 pages.  She has also responded to many PRIs for laboratories under sanctions with COLA’s STAT team.  Carol enjoys taking a lab from “failure” to full “success” on their repeat inspections.  She often stays with a lab after the corrections have been made to become their Technical Consultant.
Cathy specializes in setting up Freestanding Emergency Centers and Urgent Care Centers.  There has been a growing demand in this area in recent years, and unfortunately we have seen many set up for failure.  Cathy enjoys setting a lab up correctly from the very beginning and is very hands-on with every detail.  She also often stays on as the Technical Consultant for the laboratories she sets up.
