EBAA Accreditation: Inspections, Common Findings, and Important Updates
Includes a Live Event on 03/18/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
EBAA Eye Bank Accreditation, established in 1981, demonstrates that an eye bank is operating in compliance with the EBAA Medical Standards and ensures that safe, quality ocular tissue is being used for transplant. The Accreditation process includes an in-depth inspection by an eye bank professional and a corneal surgeon, a review of necessary records, evaluation of various tasks to prove technician’s proficiency and compliance with the Medical Standards, interviews with the Medical Director and various staff members, and more. Being prepared for an inspection is key, as any significant findings during the inspection could cost an eye bank to lose its accreditation or to receive a 1 year accreditation status.
Join us for this complimentary session about EBAA Eye Bank Accreditation. Accreditation Board Co-Chair, Chris Stoeger, and Co-Vice Chair, Kyle Mavin, will provide an overview of the EBAA Eye Bank Accreditation process, sharing information about preparing for an inspection, what to expect during an inspection, common findings and additional information about EBAA Accreditation. We hope you will join us for this free informational session about the importance of EBAA Eye Bank Accreditation, and how to set your eye bank up for success during inspections!
CEUs will not be awarded for this session.
